Golden Gloves ABC High Sheriff Award

An evening at Braunstone West End Working Mens Club to present Chris Walsh and Clare Lynch with High Sheriff Awards. Chris and Clare give most of their time and energy to Golden Gloves Amateur Boxing Club, an entirely volunteer run organisation relying mainly on donations.

I surprised the recipients (and the audience) by getting into the ring before the first fight and giving them their awards for what they are doing for their community.

The club is based in Braunstone and offers 3 session per week to young people to learn to box. When the I visited them last year, members of the club told me how the club had improved their self-worth and confidence, and they had real hope for their future. This amateur boxing club is changing lives and producing National Champions.
