The Amir Khan Academy alongside Top Yard School of Boxing have purchased a new minibus to help transport their athletes across the country for competitions due to generous sponsorships from a range of organisations, including the Amir Khan Foundation.
The Amir Khan Academy – with sites in Bolton, Peterborough and Islamabad, Pakistan – serves hundreds of children and young people within these communities. Fully DBS checked and qualified instructors provide boxing classes to young people of all ages, as well as classroom learning activities and wider access to educational programmes.
The work carried out by the Academy has been widely supported by the Amir Khan Foundation as it extends beyond fitness and sport: the academy aims to provide young people with a safe space to channel their energies in a productive way, while also creating an environment that nurtures them towards leading balanced lifestyles, enriched with healthy habits and a positive mindset.
