‘You Decide’ is a knockout!
Miles Platting based youth group, YPAC received funding from Adactus to deliver a number of free boxing sessions for local young people in Miles Platting and surrounding areas.
The sessions delivered over a number of months proved hugely popular and the young people learnt a lot of different techniques and skills such as the need for discipline, the psychology and different fitness elements involved.
Sharon Bell, YPAC Youth Worker comments “The staff and young people at YPAC were really happy to get the ‘You Decide’ funding as it gave our young people the chance to try out boxing skills and fitness. They gained a lot of new skills and we now have a paid worker who can continue to deliver boxing classes and pad work.”
Issie Howard from Adactus Housing comments “It’s great to support such a worthwhile project for young people and even better to hear that it’s continuing with the appointment of a new staff member.”
The Miles Platting You Decide Fund is open to residents and projects based in Miles Platting, looking to make a positive difference in the local community. Look out for local publicity for the next round of funding released in the next couple of months.
