Our Above and Beyond Champions category includes people who do something to an outstanding level or do something that isn’t always part of their job description but these people do it anyway and demonstrate a willingness to go all out to support the older members of our community.
The Winner of this Category was:
Victory Boxing’s Parkinson’s Programme – this champion’s name is already mentioned alot in our region, for all the right reasons. Paul Hampton and his team have built a reputation for Victory Boxing being a place of positive change in the lives of many of our young people. And that was their core mission. But three year’s ago Paul decided to set up a Parkinson’s Programme to help adults with Parkinson’s Disease, with balance, co-ordination and strength. Twice a week he and his team make an inspiring difference to the health and mental wellbeing of the participants. Victory’s trainers have had specialised training on working with Parkinson’s through Counterpunch with Shane Cameron. The classes are fun, very social and offer a supportive network for the participants. This programme is over and above and amazing and awesome and if you ever get the offer to see it in action, go!
