Andre boxes clever

Stratford Editorial 17th Sep, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THIS week the newly-renamed Stratford-upon-Avon & District Boxing Academy welcomed a young Romanian boxing fan called Andre, who comes from the town Brad.

Andre has been staying near Stratford along with a young lady called Claudia, from a nearby town of Orastie.

Both have been guests of a voluntary work called ‘Trans-mission Partnerships’, which offers opportunity for small teams to go into Romania to help with social projects.

Currently, Trans-mission Partnerships have been setting up a centre in both towns for special needs.

Andre loves boxing but has never had opportunity to visit a boxing centre until now, when the dream was made possible because of the kindness of the boxing academy, which opened its doors to him and even presented him with a boxing medal.

Now, Andre cannot wait to get home and tell all his friends about his experience.

For more information about the work of Trans-mission Partnerships, please contact Peter Malkin on 07716 997057.

Stratford-upon-Avon & District Boxing Academy is looking forward to kicking-off its 2014/15 season with Kai Johansen starting his Development Championship Campaign this coming weekend.
