Amateur Scene – July 18

An important programme is running at the Empire amateur boxing club in Bristol


FOR years the Empire Fighting Chance charity has been doing significant work in Bristol. Their programme now also incorporates an important element to help address mental health. These efforts have even been recognised with a royal visit from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

 “I understand that our charity was on their radar. Harry’s got a vested interest himself in sport and mental health. He’d heard about our work,” Jamie Sanigar told Boxing News. “He understood it. He got it. He was very passionate and followed on with subsequent meetings with his people and other projects that he’s setting up. It’s great profile for the sport to get royal interest. It’s certainly benefited us.”
