Community and volunteer engagement
Redditch Boxing Academy was created in 2013 and is run by volunteers. It has worked to create roles which provide challenge and enjoyment for the community. Therefore, the work carried out provides a benefit to many people. The range of volunteer opportunities is developing quickly. As a result, The Academy creates more volunteer hours each year.
