Boxing fun at South Park

South Park Care Home in York had a memorable visit earlier this month when Henry Wharton, a former professional boxer, and Nathan Shepherd and George Davey, two young professional boxers Henry now coaches, visited the home to talk to residents about the professional belts and medals they have won during their careers.

Both George and Nathan had won a Yorkshire Elite belt as well as gold medals in competitions across Europe.

The boxers showed residents and colleagues a few boxing moves and even gave PAL Dawn a trial ‘punchout’!

It was much enjoyed by residents and plans are afoot to bring the boxers back later in the year for a return visit.
