Mo's Boxing and Fitness Academy

Recipient of a Pobl Trust Award in 2021

In June 2021, the Pobl Trust was thrilled to award a grant of £1,000 to Mo’s Boxing and Fitness Academy. Mo had applied for funding from the Pobl Trust to develop his work in keeping young people active and fit, and engaged and away from the streets.

With over 150 adult members and 80 young people attending sessions, Mo’s Boxing prides itself on offering provision for all, developing fitness and boxing skills in an inclusive environment.

Trustee Vic Eynon had a great time meeting Mo at the Academy in Newport – thanks for having us Mo!

“Pobl Trust funding has made such a huge difference to so many people. We’ve improved the equipment in the Gym and bought new gloves so that kids who might not be able to afford them can still join in with the activities. Kids as young as 4 years old come here and it gives them something to focus on. It’s been great to welcome people back into the Gym after lockdown with new equipment. Honestly, thank you so much!” Mohammed Nasir
