Attleborough Amateur Boxing Club receives financial boost
A sports club in Attleborough has received a funding boost that will help buy new boxing gloves and medicine balls.
As part of the Families First charity, Radio Norwich, recently handed over a �500 cheque to Attleborough Amateur Boxing Club towards replacing training equipment at the club's gym.
The grant has been used to replace both training boxing gloves, which the junior members use, and also purchase some new medicine balls after the existing equipment became very worn.
Phil Barrow, director and trustee of Families First presented the cheque to Jeremy Burton, Attleborough Amateur Boxing Club's chairman during a junior training session at the club.
He said: 'I was delighted to be asked to visit the club and present the cheque. I had a chance to see for myself how much the club is used by the local community and its value to many families in the area which is something we look for when deciding on our charity grants.'
