St Peter’s ABC and Champions 4 Change delivering the GB Boxing Awards at Plumstead Manor Girls School

Congratulations to the 50 + year 10 students from Plumstead Manor for their hard work and dedication whilst completing the Preliminary Boxing Award programme. Throughout the programme the students showed a high level of discipline and respect to both their class mates and the Boxing Tutors from St Peter’s ABC and Champions 4 Change.
Over the 8 week period the students really applied themselves well and worked well as a team to help each other develop and grow. “It was great to see the girl’s enthusiasm and determination as the programme went on, the majority had never done any form of boxing before but all said that they loved it and want to continue in the future. A number of the girls now attend the Women’s only Boxing sessions help at St Peters ABC”.

The success that was achieved at Plumstead Manor is a great benchmark and really shows that boxing is for everyone. One of the highlights other than awarding the students with their preliminary awards certificates and medals was the interest from a number of students in doing the Boxing Tutor Course. They said “We really want to further build and develop our new skills, and hopefully one day we can teach other young people Boxing and give them Awards. It has helped us with our confidence and self-esteem. We also feel safer when travelling around as we know some self-defence”

There is hopes that St Peters will host its annual club show at Plumstead Manor later in the year as it has some great facilities and space. If all goes to plan all of the students that took part in the programme will be invited to the show and possibly do an exhibition at the beginning to open up proceedings. In addition to this Scott said “The platform that Boxing Awards provides is exceptional, seeing these young people grow is incredibly rewarding. I am going to invite Q Shillingford as a guest of honour to the show as he is the man that has put all of this together and a truly inspirational guy”

Special thanks to Boxing Awards, Plumstead Manor and their great team also to England Boxing for funding such an impactful project. Hopefully these projects can be built upon and delivered in other schools around the Greenwich Borough.
Well done to Scott O’Connor at St Peter’s ABC and Champions 4 Change for his continuous efforts to engage with and inspire young people in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
