Weʼre raising £6,000 to help raise funds for our Boxing Club. COVID19 closure has hit us hard. It could be 6 months of closure. We need your generous donations.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

During these difficult times, we are all experiencing challenges that will affect many people’s health, social lives and livelihoods for a long time to come.
As one of the 950+ amateur boxing clubs in England who are run entirely by voluntary coaches, we give up 6 nights every single week to run Ribble Valley Amateur Boxing Club. We do this for the benefit of our local communities, and our gym is a sanctuary for many people in England.
Our volunteers at Ribble Valley Amateur Boxing Club manage to train our members by covering essential overheads primarily through a combination of subscription fees, and fundraising by hosting boxing shows for the public.
At this stage, there is a great level of uncertainty around the impact that Coronavirus will have on Ribble Valley Amateur Boxing Club as we will still need to cover our overheads throughout the coming weeks and months, but with little to no income to do so.
That is why we are backing the “KO COVID-19” campaign, appealing to members of our local community to donate whatever they can to your local boxing club, to help ensure that when we as a nation have KO’d Covid-19, there is still an amateur boxing club in Clitheroe people can return to.
Or if you are willing to give #onemoreround to #KOCOVID19 by launching your own fundraiser for Ribble Valley Amateur Boxing Club, your efforts will not go unnoticed if you tag us using;
@englandboxingofficial (Instagram) @EnglandBoxing (Facebook) @england_boxing (Twitter) in your social media posts, to allow us to spread your hard work.
Whatever you do, however big or small, please help your local club to #KOCOVID19, and thank you from all of us at Ribble Valley Amateur Boxing Club.
