Port Glasgow Victoria Amateur Boxing Club
2020 Renewables sponsor future boxing star
2020 are delighted to sponsor ABS female boxer of the year Natalie McKay, giving her local training ground, the Port Glasgow Victoria Amateur Boxing Club, a donation of £1000.
The funding is part of the campaign to ensure that Natalie, who is only 20 years old, will be able to compete in the Commonwealth Games that will be hosted in Glasgow next year.
Natalie McKay commented; “When I started boxing I never thought I’d have an opportunity of competing at the Commonwealth Games, let alone being sponsored to do so. I really can’t get over all the support that Kenny and the club have given me, and now this. All I can say is thank you to the club and 2020 Renewables.”
Port Glasgow Victoria Amateur Boxing Club has been open in the area for over 30 years and provides boxing lessons for local people of a range of ages, from children to seniors.
Talking after the presentation, Alasdair Macleod, Development Director, at 2020 Renewables, said: “Natalie is only 20 years old but already her talent means she stands a real chance of being one of the Games future boxing stars. I’m glad the contribution we have made will help Natalie and others at the boxing club progress and I hope everyone in Inverclyde will support her.”
Kenny Crighton, owner of the club, commented: “I’m really delighted that 2020 Renewables have sponsored Natalie. She may be young but she’s worked so hard at our club and it would be great to see such an enthusiastic and talented girl do well at Glasgow 2014. And it’s good to see a local company invest in the community.”
