Fairbairn Boxing Club’s Taps Makhado brought back a silver medal from the Haringey Box Cup, Europe’s biggest club competition, staged at Alexandra Palace last weekend.

The Ilford club boxer won on Saturday but suffered a final defeat against powerful Nyall Berry from Birmingham’s O’Dells Community club in their Youth B 56kg final on Sunday.

Makhado had been in impressive form during his semi-final, earning a points victory over Harrogate opponent Jamie Walker.

Fairbairn’s Fatjon Gola fought bravely against heavy hooking Evoke Club rival Courtney Frimpong in a Senior A 64kg contest but suffered a points defeat.

Senior B 75kg entry Joshua Gustave lost a tight split verdict against first-day rival Andrei Descalu from Stonebridge who went on to take the gold medal.

And the club’s Taha Riaz also lost out in his Youth B 64kg contest to St Mary Chatham BC boxer Sam Dawson, who also won gold.

Oaks Park High School Year 8 student Rhia Gondhia likes to make people feel welcome.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
