Knockout Results! Surrey Chambers Business Breakfast

December 15th, 2014 in Archive by 0 Comments

Boxing and business are a great mix, they need the same dedication, determination and courage, and to be a world beater that little bit of flair and vision.

As part of the Surrey Chambers year of sport – we have been invited to bring along some of the counties boxing community to the SURREY CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE BUSINESS BREAKFAST ON 27th JANUARY AT FOXHILLS COUNTRY ESTATE to talk about their experiences, we hope they will inspire you with their stories of the impact their sport has made on their lives, they did for Surrey Clubs for Young People Vice President Peter Lee the High Sheriff of Surrey (pictured above) who said:

“One of my themes during my year as High Sheriff is getting young people active; getting them into sport. Why? Because sport is inclusive it is also a way of engaging young people in a positive way – positive for them and positive for their communities. And it has been proven that it can cut crime and anti-social behaviour. Boxing is an excellent example of this.

I had the pleasure of visiting Guildford City Boxing Club I watched a group of young lads spar, train and workout and I could see what they were getting out of the experience. It’s an activity which helps build self-esteem, confidence, discipline and personal achievement (not to mention fitness and better health). It also teaches values like respect, enjoyment and sportsmanship.

I saw on the walls photographs of the lads who have passed through the doors of the club. It gives them a sense of purpose and a sense of pride. I am very proud to support boxing in Surrey.”

Surrey Clubs for Young People supports 24 boxing clubs across Surrey. This year we have produced 4 national champions and have two boxers in the team GB Rio squad. We are holding a Charity Boxing Dinner on Thursday 26th March 2015 at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking.
