Good Relations Grant Aid 2020 Showcase – Monkstown Boxing Club

As part of Good Relations Week, we are showcasing the projects that came out of last year’s Good Relations Grant funding from Antrim & Newtownabbey Borough Council.

Monkstown Boxing Club’s Good Relations project originated from the young members of the club. These young people wanted to get outside of their comfort zone and create a group of individuals who weren’t just from Monkstown. They wanted to meet new people from different backgrounds and cultures and learn from that. Out of this, their Good Relations journey started to take shape.

Find out more about their project in this video.
