The William Wates Memorial Trust successfully supported two students through the London Boxing Academy in 2007/2008. This represented total funding of £10,000.
As a result of this success we have committed a further total of £54,000 over 3 years to support the salary of the Course Director. This donation has contributed to the continuity, strength, cohesion and confidence of the operation. It has also freed up time for Chris Hall to devote to the day to day operation of the London Boxing Academy.
Based in Tottenham, the London Boxing Academy uses boxing as a way to entice children with a bad track record at school back into the classroom. In addition to boxing and sport the London Boxing Academy mainly teach English and Maths and also various vocational subjects on demand.
