Working with organisations like Action for Children’s Serious Organised Crime Early Intervention Service, another National Lottery funded project, Llanrumney Phoenix works hard to steer young people away from offending.

Llanrumney Phoenix Boxing Club reached the final of the 25th Birthday National Lottery Awards – the annual search to find the UK’s favourite lottery-funded projects and people – for its inclusive work.

The club recently scooped a further National Lottery grant of £440 from the Sport Wales Be Active Wales Fund to help it restart its boxing activities after lockdown. The money was spent on a thermometer, Covid safety signage, facemasks, gloves and skipping ropes to ensure a safe, socially distant training environment.

In another knock-out win, in July 2020 the club secured £295,543 from the National Lottery Community Fund Wales so that it can expand its work even further working with children at risk of exclusion, homeless people as well as those living with dementia, depression, anxiety and isolation.

Thanks to National Lottery players, £30 million is raised every week for good causes, many of which are supporting the most vulnerable in communities across the UK during the Coronavirus crisis.
