After an absolutely fantastic night at Media Fight Night 2021 last night, we are excited to reveal that our mental health boxing charity ‘In Your Corner’ has a new name…’Off The Ropes’.
The ‘In Your Corner’ programme, which focusing on improving people’s physical and mental health through boxing, was initiated in 2014 and became a registered charity in 2018. Since then, the team’s passion for helping young adults and children suffering with their mental health has grown immensely. We have seen the huge value and the benefit that our members gain from attending our sessions and from being part of our community, and we want to do even more to help!
Changing our name to ‘Off The Ropes’ is the first step on that journey of doing more. Not only does it give us a new identity and renewed energy after a difficult 18 months through the Covid-19 pandemic, but it also gives us fresh new foundations on which to continue building on our ambitions. And with the support of Media Fight Night and the staggering amount of funds that were raised at last night’s event, we have some much-needed financial support to help us on our way.
We’d like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who has supported us and donated so far on our journey and to the Media Fight Night team for choosing us as their charity over the last few years. We look forward to our future as ‘Off The Ropes’.
