Weʼre raising £2,500 to Help cover the cost of the club over the next few weeks and months as we will need to cover our overheads but with little income to do so.

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 4.5 nights every single week to run Wimborne 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 Wimborne 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 Wimborne Amateur Boxing Club, as we will more than likely 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 Wimborne that people can return to.
Any donation great or small is hugely appreciated, Whatever you do, however big or small, please help your local club to #KOCOVID19, and thank you from all of us at Wimborne Amateur Boxing Club
