Children’s television CBBC were filming at the Empire gym with EFC trustee Charlotte Leslie MP, young people from Millpond Primary School and Presenter Alex Riley this week. The episode is centred around two young people who engaged in ‘A day in the life of an MP,’ as part of their day they were brought to the Empire Gym and told about how boxing training is an excellent release from the everyday stresses of working life as a politician. Charlotte also explained that some of the skills that you develop in a boxing setting can help in other areas of life such as building resilience and self confidence.

They also got to see the boys and girlsĀ from Millpond School training hard with their coach.
