Manchester mayor Andy Burnham visits Timperley ABC as the ‘Sting Like a Bee’ initiative gets underway
STRENGTH: The initiative is harnessing the power of boxing

MAVERICK STARS, a charity founded to change the lives of young people, has partnered with England Boxing to support numerous clubs and has started the ‘Sting Like a Bee’ initiative. This programme, started to address anti-social behaviour and help tackle knife crime, is opening up a series of boxing and leadership programmes at different clubs in Greater Manchester. Each of the region’s 10 boroughs now has at least one designated ‘Maverick’ gym.
