We have been asked by so many women to provide these sessions for free and now with the help of this funding we can.

Local LBBD not-for-profit youth & community organisation receives grant from money raised by HealthStrength to help women across the borough participate in a free community activity, BoxFit Ladies.

A Barking-based charity that uses sports to help people overcome personal and social barriers to achieving, has received a £21,000 grant from money raised by HealthStrength through The Health Lottery. The funding will enable Future M.O.L.D.S Communities to provide free weekly non-contact Boxing sessions over 2 years to 60 women across the borough. Organisation co-founder Sarah Robertson, said: “We have been asked by so many women to provide these sessions for free and now with the help of this funding we can.”

The launch session was held at Barking Library, Town Square, Barking on Wednesday 24th June 2015. Future sessions will continue at the same venue on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8pm. The sessions provide boxing techniques and fitness for all abilities, healthy eating and exercise plans and opportunities to volunteer and contribute to making a positive difference in your community whilst making new friends. One lady who participated said: “I had so much fun I didn’t even realise how much I had worked out!’

One of the volunteers who helped develop and provide this project said: “It is so rewarding to see the teams hard work finally pay off.”
