Boxing For Veterans (BFV) is a CIC based in Bracknell and was initially established to support and raise money for veteran’s charities, through boxing events, pitting Armed Forces Veterans against civilian club boxers. 
Since inception they have formed a community of veterans and civilian supporters. However, their mission scope has evolved and expanded to directly support the recovery journey of veterans through the power of sport and community. 
They work tackling isolation, physical and mental health recovery and developing a community network among veterans and supportive civilians, all while continuing to raise money through events. 
Boxing for Veterans provides support to the individuals, creates a community of shared support and raises funding for dedicated military charities. 
This first gym will be a pilot for additional gyms across the country.
