Local boxing club started to reduce knife crime receives National Lottery grant
A community boxing club has got a new lease of life after receiving £160,000 from the National Lottery Community fund.
The Edmonton Eagles was founded in 2004 to give local youngsters a social outlet following a spate of knife crime in the area where six people lost their lives in just five months.
The grant will continue to allow the club to offer free coaching to teens in the area.
London Live went to visit the club, and spoke to some of the coaches and members to find out what boxing, and the Edmonton Eagles, means to them.
