As part of LIMA’s commitment to supporting initiatives in our local community, we were proud to provide Bridgewater Salford Amateur Boxing Club with a knockout minibus to get its budding boxers on the road to train and compete across the country.

The Amateur Boxing Association of England (ABAE) club, headed up by personal trainer and ex-cruiserweight Lee Whitehead, gives fighters access to top-class training facilities as well as opportunities to compete in both local and national tournaments. Opening its doors more than 20 years ago, Bridgewater Salford ABC has also helped hundreds of local people of all ages to get into the sport.

Lee said: “We’re so happy that LIMA has provided a minibus for our boxing gym. The transport will be invaluable for our coaches and boxers, helping us travel to other clubs for sparring sessions, and reach venues around the country to compete in regional and national competitions, and national club shows.”

As an avid boxing fan, our CEO Lisa Thornton is particularly proud to support Bridgewater Salford ABC: “I’ve always been in awe of the hard work put in by Lee and the team so it’s a pleasure to help them in any way that we can. We hope the minibus will make a real difference, and the club knows they can always count on LIMA to support homegrown talent and the future heavy hitters of British boxing.”

Located close to Salford shopping centre, Bridgewater Salford ABC is open to all ages and abilities. There are classes for children aged 6 and above on Tuesdays and Thursdays 17:00-18:00, as well as amateur boxing classes for both males and females aged between 10 and 40 on Tuesdays and Thursdays 19:00-20:30. Between these classes, the club also hosts keep fit classes for all ages 18:00-19:00, as well as a ladies-only class on Wednesdays 18:00-19:00. For more information, head to the club’s Facebook page.

The LIMA team is looking forward to throwing our weight behind the stars of Bridgewater Salford ABC at future tournaments! You can read more about LIMA’s work in the community and our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility here.
