Costa’s sponsorship of the club has allowed them to buy new gloves, boxing pads and coaching equipment.

Miles Harding from Leigh Park Amateur Boxing Club said: ‘We’re delighted Leigh Park’s new Costa store has decided to sponsor our club. It not only demonstrates huge support for the work we do, but also for the young people of our community. We wish the Costa team much success with their new store.’

The new Leigh Park Costa will create eight new jobs and will provide much-needed training and apprenticeships for young people.
