Bellway brings amateur boxing club to Huyton

By Philosophy PR

12 Nov 2019

With several developments in the Huyton area, housebuilder Bellway was delighted to lend its support to Dovecot Boxing Academy, a new amateur boxing club located in the Granada Building on East Prescot Road.

The project has taken five months to come together, with the new facility due to open on Monday 4th November and to be run by a trio of local residents Peter White, Owen Ryan and Lee Moleneux.

The boxing club will have six to eight trainers, all volunteers, who will offer a number of bespoke boxing sessions to youngsters during the week, as well as offer boxing-based fitness classes, catering for all ages.

Upon hearing about Dovecot Boxing Academy, Bellway immediately made a donation of £500, which was used by the club to put the necessary regulations and insurances in place.

Peter White comments: “We are very grateful to Bellway for its generous donation. The money they contributed allowed us to pay for all affiliation and insurances to get the gym open and functioning, which is just super news.

“Our aim is to train youngsters, teaching them the skills of boxing, but also some valuable life skills too, such as respect, discipline, self-confidence, team work and communication. We will actively encourage children from the age of six upwards to get involved, steering them towards a more positive future and navigating them away from anti-social behaviour and crime.

“In addition to the boxing, we want to make a difference in the community and the youngsters will be asked to help out, for example by picking up litter and visiting the elderly in local care homes. We want them to be proud of the area and enjoy a sense of achievement when helping out.

“And, who knows, hopefully we will find the next World Champion at Dovecot Boxing Academy!”

Jenny Bell, sales director at Bellway, adds: “What Peter and the other gentlemen, plus the trainers, are setting out to do is incredible. They have strived to source all the necessary funding for the amateur boxing club and we are pleased to have a played a small part in the opening of the facility, which will no doubt prove to be a big hit with youngsters in Dovecot and the wider Huyton area.

“We want to wish Dovecot Boxing Academy all the very best; they really are going the extra mile to make a positive difference to the lives of those living locally.”
