January 26, 2018 | by Gemma Field


This week Brighton and Hove ABC (Southern Counties) welcomed a group from the charity Blind Veterans to their gym to try out the sport.

The group joined the club’s boxers and trainers to experience the sport and were put through their paces by retired Amateur Heavyweight Champion Scott Welch.

Blind Veterans UK were taking part in a fitness week which gave the charities’ members the chance to participate in a range of sports.

Richard Phinbow, Sports and Recreation Instructor at Blind Veterans UK, told the charity: “We hold four fitness and training weeks throughout the year but the first one after Christmas is always very popular.”
