Carney’s Community 4 January 2013
Established at Fitzroy Lodge Amateur Boxing club in Lambeth, Carney’s Community is a charity to engage disadvantaged young people by initially using boxing training, and then continued support to enable young people to become ‘the best they can be’. Fitzroy Lodge has been responsible for producing boxers such as David Haye and the late Neville Cole to name but a few.

Named after the late, great Mick Carney MBE (head coach at Fitzroy Lodge 1955-2011), Carney’s Community has continued Mick’s work with young people under the leadership of Mark Reigate and George Turner.

Recent successes include;- supporting one young person into the Royal Marines, who having completed basic training went on to participate in the PARAS 10 run ( 10mile run in Marine Uniform boots and 35lb backpack) raising £500 for the charity. Carney’s Community also acted as an advisor to the All Party Parliamentary Group on boxing, with staff and participants appearing on a documentary for Channel 4, BBC Radio 4’s ‘The World at One’ and at the House of Commons in a panel discussion on the direct benefits of amateur boxing clubs on anti-social behaviour and offending.
