Boxing Skills ClassesFormer Professional Boxer Jimmy Lowther is running boxing classes for young people on Cottingley Springs caravan site. Every Friday after school Jimmy uses equipment that GATE have supplied from our Summer Play Enable Grant Scheme, to run the session for 5 – 10 year olds. ‘Its more about fitness’ say Jimmy, ‘but they will learn the discipline too’. Hopefully the sessions will continue indefinitely without GATEs involvement and become an example of our Asset Based Community Development work.
