All the funds raised were donated to The Boxing Academy in Hackney. The Boxing Academy is a charity that provides 13-16 year olds in east London with an education when they would otherwise be excluded from school. It is an alternative to mainstream school, combining basic education and mentoring with the discipline and culture of boxing and other sport training to re-engage the most difficult-to-reach young people. They do some fantastic work for the local community and Ofsted have ascertained the high standard of teaching they provide.
There is still time, so please donate to this fantastic cause: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserPage.action?userUrl=buildingboxingday&faId=391166&isTeam=true
