Natasha Jonas, the 36 year old British boxer, has recently opened up her skills to children in the Liverpool area, as well as offering to provide food to families in need.

The boxer felt some responsibility to give back and help out in her community, in light of recent complications due to COVID-19, and is prepared to attend private sessions across Liverpool to give children boxing lessons.

Her desire for change occurred after a decision to combat the closing of gyms across the UK, and her wanting to “give back to those who stood together” in bringing this decision.

“We have had a mentality that, in Liverpool, we always stick together. We have stood together to keep the gyms open, so we wanted to give something back and do these sessions."

As an amateur she won bronze at the 2012 AIBA World Championships, silver at the 2014 European Championships and became the first ever British female boxer to compete at an Olympic Games. She has a current record of 9-1-1.

In light of influence created by sportspeople such as Marcus Rashford, it’s amazing to see another inspirational figure give back to the community, and do something positive.
