Weʼre raising £1,000 to help the running costs of our boxing club during its closure. Strood ABC puts the community first offering boxing to everyone

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.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
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 an average of 4 nights every single week to run STROOD 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 volunteer coaches at Strood ABC 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 Strood ABC, 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 Strood/Medway that people can return to.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to all those that have donated. The costs will help towards covering the gym while we are in lockdown. We are going to increase our target now to £1000 to enable others to donate to our great club, again thank you to everyone who has donated means so much. Additional fund raised will be put towards new gym equipment #KOCOVID19
