A boxing club is opening to the public to raise money for its first fight night.
Redbridge Amateur Boxing Club moved to its new home in Clayhall Park in February.
Now the members-only club is inviting men, women and children to visit to get a taste of amateur boxing.
Head coach Khuram Amin said: “I think it’s a brilliant idea. Being healthy is important.
“There are a lot of private facilities in the area used by local groups, but the public don’t get this access.”
Khuram said the club – which received support for the new clubhouse from the Olympic Legacy Fund – was looking to raise money towards hosting its first boxing show on Friday, November 7.
Sessions at the club cost £3. For more information contact Khuram on 07954 795064.
