Last month, Jon Cruddas MP’s team had the pleasure of meeting with Billy Adams, one of Dagenham Boxing Clubs finest. Dagenham Boxing Club is a non-profit, voluntary organisation which is dedicated to young people in the local community. When many young men would head home after school to play video games, Billy would head to the club. His dedication to the sport has resulted in Billy being a three-time national champion.

How it started

Last year on 27th November Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham & Rainham attended the Dagenham PC Boxing Club’s boxing show. The event was held at Dagenham & Redbridge Football Club.

Jon Cruddas was invited by Club Secretary Dan O’Sullivan as a guest of honour.

Taekwondo black-belt and Barking & Dagenham College student, Leighann Lewis, is one step closer to being able to fulfil her dream of competing for the UK in the Olympics, thanks to a £1000 sponsorship cheque from Barking and Dagenham College, presented to her by Dagenham and Rainham MP Jon Cruddas.
