There was an issue in Wem, North Shropshire with anti-social behaviour by young people, particularly in the evenings. The local police team were looking for support to help tackle the problem.
Energize STW were able to provide satellite club funding to create a new boxing club in Wem, managed by well-established local club – Salopian Amateur Boxing Club who are based in Shrewsbury.
Energize, working in collaboration with the police and Rob and Brydie O’Keefe from Salopian ABC, were able to secure Tuesday and Friday evening boxing evenings aimed specifically at young people in the Wem area.
The video showcases the project and highlights the positive impact seen after only a couple of months.
