Boxers look to clean up
HAYLE BOXING Academy (HBA) has received sponsorship from a local businessman ahead of their official launch at the end of September.
David Morris, owner of David Morris Window Cleaners, presented the new club with a cheque for £1,000.
Mr Morris said he wanted to support the new club, part of St Ives Bay Amateur Boxing Club, to give something back to the community he lives and works in.
He added: "I have raised three children in Hayle and I'm well aware of the need for this club as there isn't a lot to do in the evenings. Thanks to local support I have run and developed my business here, so when I heard Andrew from St Ives Bay ABC was starting this venture it gave me the opportunity to give something back to the community that will benefit everyone in lots of ways.
"I'm delighted to help and wish the club all the very best."
HBA founder and head coach, Andrew Wheeler, said that sponsorship has been vital for the club to get set up and purchase new equipment.
"To have a major sponsor with the club is great news," said Mr Wheeler. "I extend our gratitude to all the businesses and organisations that donated to the venture."
To mark the launch of HBA, an open day is being held at Hayle Community School on Sunday, September 22, where coaches will be on hand to provide free bag and pad tuition.
Sessions, which will be held at the school, begin on Thursday, September 26 from 5pm until 5.45pm for ages 6 to 11, with women's fitness class following from 6pm to 7pm and boxing lessons for 17 years and over from 7.15pm to 8.45pm.
