The foundation has already funded two separate and distinct projects since its inception.
TIMPERLEY COMMUNITY AMATEUR BOXING CLUB
Maverick Stars Trust has committed £150,000 towards a capital build project.
The club based on the Broomwood Estate has been providing a significant quality service to its local community since its inception seven years previously, the trustees were impressed on how the club had continued to sustain itself without any significant partnership support but via a group of committed volunteers.
The trust also took extra steps to support the project by engaging with England Boxing and providing a support network to support the organisation by helping access further funding to match their own investment. The Maverick Stars Trust investment was equal to a 37.5% of the total project cost, and also to date has assisted the club in securing match funding from Sport England, Trafford Council, Trafford Housing Trust.
This project should be completed by late 2019.
PHOENIX FIRE FIT AND FED SUMMER PROJECT
This was a four-week project in partnership with the Phoenix Fire Amateur Boxing Club in Warrington, Cheshire.
The project was to alleviate holiday hunger in communities surrounding Phoenix Fire ABC. The project targeted children aged between 8-. 14 who are receipt of free school dinners from families whom have a low income. The Maverick Stars Trust invested £3100 to the project.
On completion the project engaged with 33 young people from the target group, 5 young leaders were trained and obtained qualifications in Leadership. Over 400 meals were provided to the young people during the project. The retention rate for the project was over 80% of participants attending 80% of the activities provided.
One of the most popular figures in British boxing, Jamie is a former European, British, Irish, Commonwealth and European light-middleweight Champion.
Since hanging up the gloves, Jamie has gone on to become a successful TV pundit – a familiar face on Sky Sports – and now trains a busy stable of top professionals including two-weight world champion Carl Frampton and rising star Chantelle Cameron.
Jamie has always used his profile and love of boxing as a force for good and is delighted to be working with Maverick Stars.
Jamie said: “Growing up in in Salford, I know how important it is to have the opportunities that sport, and boxing, can give kids who otherwise have little hope. It’s crucial that we do all we can to help people stay on the right path and chase their dreams.”
The highlight of Conner’s career so far has been the bronze medal he won for England at the Youth World Championships in Hungary in 2018 – although most watching believed the teenager had done enough to make it through to the final.
Regardless, the Mancunian middleweight has a burgeoning reputation in the sport and is dreaming of representing Great Britain at the Olympics. He’s certainly come a very long way since walking into Moss Side Fire Station Boxing Club as a wide-eyed eight-year-old.
As well as working hard in progressing his own career, Conner has joined forces with Maverick Stars to work on projects that will help other young people stay on track to achieve their goals.
Conner said: “The support I get off Maverick Stars is helping me continue my path and I want to work with the charity to help others just like me. It’s hard to stay motivated and in the gym when there are so many distractions, but hopefully I can be an example to others.”
Chantelle is quickly establishing herself as one of Britain’s most exciting boxing talents and is a woman in a hurry to achieve her ambitions of winning world titles.
From Northampton, but now based in Manchester, Chantelle began fighting as a ten-year old kickboxer. After running out of opponents and titles to hoover up, Chantelle switched to boxing aged 18 and rose rapidly to take her place on the GB squad. The plan then? Olympic glory.
That chapter didn’t reach the dream conclusion after Chantelle missed out on qualification for Rio 2016. Despite the bitter disappointment, ‘Wham Bam Chan’ decided to join the pro ranks and her unbeaten career has blossomed. The new dream – to chase down Irish sensation Katie Taylor and win a blockbuster fight to become the unified lightweight world champion.
Chantelle’s also determined to use her profile in boxing to encourage other young people to get active and use the power of sport to improve their lives.
“Kickboxing and boxing have helped me on so many different levels,” Chantelle explained. “I didn’t believe I’d have a career in professional boxing when I was a little girl, but everything has changed, and we have to create as many opportunities for people as we can.”
“Maverick Stars is a charity that is doing just that, and I’m delighted to be on board.”
