To all users of Islington Boxing Club,
We hope everyone is keeping safe and well during these testing times. As previously promised we write to update you all on the on-going closure of IBC gym.
With the Government lockdown now continuing for a further 3-weeks minimum we have no choice but to keep the club closed for at least another 3-weeks, we will review the situation by the 8th May 2020.
We’re all eager to get back to the gym and to get the club running as per normal but we’re unable to do this until advised otherwise.
The club would like to thank those that have already donated to our funding plea that was sent out last week. We urge those that haven’t already donated to please consider making a donation to Islington Boxing Club if you are in a position to do so. Even if its your subs fee per week, this would make a difference.
Donations can be made via our Just Giving page www.justgiving.com/islingtonboxingclub or alternatively by Cheque made payable to ‘Islington Boxing Club’ and posted to the club postal address – 20 Hazellville Road, London, N19 3LP.

DONATION PLEA – Islington Boxing Club Needs Your Help!
To all Members, Non-Members, Ex Members, Friends & Supporters of Islington Boxing Club,
Covid – 19 has had a devastating impact on our Club both emotionally and financially, not least by the death of our club Life Vice President, Mr Colin Webster. An enormously important member of the Islington Boxing Club family.
The financial impact of this deadly virus is far reaching. As the club is a registered charity, we do not have the benefit of Government aid. Whilst closed for the past three weeks we have been deprived of essential income. Experts predict that the lock down could last a further 9 weeks. Our costs remain unchanged, approximately £2000 per month as we are compelled to pay for the building and its associated costs. We are bound by our contracts. The club cannot sustain this level of expenditure indefinitely.
Our normal fundraising activities have been forced to stop which includes our Dinner Boxing event which was due to be held in May but is now cancelled. All other channels of raising money throughout the year have also been placed on hold. We are therefore asking for your help. Help to fundraise, to donate, to do whatever you can to ensure the survival and future of this club. We appreciate that some of you will not be in a position to assist at this time, but we hope that others might, however small the contribution. If enough of our supporters made a donation of £10 or more, it could the help the club enormously and make the difference between survival and closure.
Since the club’s inception, tens of thousands of people have passed through its doors providing so many with so much. Boxers young and old, aspiring professionals and amateurs alike have benefited enormously from the commitment of this club and its team of voluntary trainers. Islington Boxing Club has been a safe haven for disadvantaged children/young adults and training in the Junior and Senior Academies has been a lifeline for many. The club also provides many other recreational activities; including fitness classes, educational support, wellbeing and essential work with local schools and the probation services.
The family ethos of this club has provided emotional support to many. A place where friendships have been fostered and sustained. The contribution that this club has made and that we hope will continue to make to the community is vital.
In order for Islington Boxing Club to continue, we urgently need your help.
Please donate what you can, donations can be made via our Just Giving page webpage below.
Or via Cheque payable to ‘Islington Boxing Club’ and sent to the club postal address – 20 Hazellville Road, London, N19 3LP.
Please feel free to share to your friends, family and employers. The greater number of people that this message reaches the better chance we have to financially survive these testing times.
