Bollington sponsor charity boxing event in memory of Yousef Makki

Charity Boxing Event

Bollington Insurance is proud to announce that we are sponsoring a charity boxing event at The Sheridan Suite in Manchester on Saturday, 15th June.

The event is being held by Longsight Sports & Boxing Club, who were founded in 2013 with the aim of supporting young people in the community through sport. The club is now looking to register as a community focussed charity, working to improve the lives of residents in Longsight and surrounding areas.

Bollington Insurance are proud to be one of the main sponsors of the event, which is being held in memory of Yousef Makki, the teenager from Hale Barns who tragically became a victim of knife crime earlier this year.

Improving young lives

The primary aim of the community charity is to ensure young people steer clear of gangs and use their energy productively, keeping them off the streets and helping them towards a more positive future.

Rachel Aston, Group Marketing Director at Bollington Insurance, said: “We are proud to support this event to help promote the excellent work of this local boxing club in improving the lives of young people.

“The untimely death of Yousef Makki is a painful reminder of the consequences of knife crime, so we fully support this initiative to help young people to make a positive difference in their communities.”
