The Hinton Community Centre, based on the Ross Road, Hereford has been home to boxing club initiavites and projects for some years now.
In 2014, it was decided to constitute a new organisation know as South Wye Police Boxing Academy. The Academy is run by Vince McNally and Richard Roberts who are both accredited level 2 Amateur Boxing Association coaches.
In September 2014 the Academy was delighted to be awarded a grant from the Police and Crime Commissioner for West Mercia. The Academy is also very grateful to its other supporters such as Round Table and Hereford Rotary Club.
The Academy will organise sessions for schools and colleges teaching boxing and basing sessions around valuable skills such as self-control, decision making and health issues generally.
The Academy seeks to occupy young people productively and to reduce local crime through the support and education of young people.
