Carney’s Coaches

Carney’s CoachesSeven Carney’s Community volunteer coaches successfully delivered a summer scheme in 2013 at Fitzroy Lodge Amateur Boxing Club as part of a corporate social responsibility initiative sponsored by South London Procurement Network (SLPN).

The coaches delivered a boxing fitness training program for over 30 young people, for two hours a day, three days a week for two weeks.

Carney's Coaches press coverageThey created lesson plans, recruited the young people and delivered each session. They were also all trained, and got qualified, in the Boxing tutor Award and/or the Junior Boxing Organiser Award.

These participants have really excelled through the training given by the volunteers, and it has been fantastic to see their commitment and dedication. They have learnt so many skills through this summer scheme that they can now take to employers in the local area. We are also thrilled to see that three of the volunteer coaches have already managed to gain paid employment since starting the project. (George Turner)

The SLPN was set up by Shell Centre developers Qatari Diar and Canary Wharf Group last year, to boost business for companies located in South London. Awards to the most committed participant and the most dedicated coach were donated by Big J’s Kitchen and clothing label London Go Getters.

This project has helped to show me what I am capable of and also to help me to motivate the young people who have trained so hard over the past two weeks. (Andre Sterling, Volunteer Carney’s Coach)
