Congratulations to Rushane Francis who is April’s Champion of the Month. Rushane has been working with Empire since summer 2013 when he attended our summer activity programme. Over the past month he has shown a fantastic improvement in his commitment and attitude towards our training and mentoring.

The Easter Holiday programme funded by Bristol Youth and Community Action (BYCA) allowed us to work closely with Rushane on a daily basis over the two week period. He responded in a very positive way and has shown significant interest in taking the sport of boxing to a higher level by joining the Empire Amateur Boxing Club. Feedback from City Academy school have also noticed improvements in his behaviour.
