Healthy activities - Priesthill, Glasgow
Run solely by volunteers, The Noble Art Amateur Boxing Club is bringing much needed benefits to the Priesthill area of Glasgow and the surrounding neighbourhoods.
The club promotes boxing to people of all ages and abilities as a way of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
On top of this, they offer table tennis and other physical activities for local people whose aspirations range from becoming a professional sports person to those who simply want to be fitter and healthier.
Following its success, members and the community were consulted over ways to enhance the club. As a result, Sanctuary provided £500 of funding to enable the purchase of two new spin-bikes, a low-impact physical activity alternative to complement those already running at the club.
Sanctuary’s Community Investment team is now providing ongoing support to the club, helping to link them in with existing local opportunities for partnership working.
