APPG on Boxing AGM on Tuesday 10th July 2018

The APPG on Boxing AGM will be taking place between 11.30am - 12.30pm on Tuesday 10th July.

Since reforming after the 2017 General Election, the Group has held meetings focusing on key issues such as how to increase representation and participation of women in boxing, as well as how boxing can act as a social intervention for young people affected by crime, violence and social exclusion. 

The Group has also hosted a range of speakers including former professional boxer Clinton Woods, Shadow Sports Minister Dr. Rosena Allin-Khan MP, professional boxer Tasha Jonas, and most recently British boxing legend Ricky Hatton.

The AGM on 10th July 2018 will seek to elect the Parliamentary office holders and agree on the Group’s activities for the year ahead. During the next 12 months, the APPG will be holding regular meetings when Parliament is sitting, and it plans to examine key issues including the social impacts of grassroots boxing; boxing and mental health; supporting boxing at all levels in the UK; and safety in boxing.
