Gladiators Boxing Academy, Huddersfield

Celebrating Huddersfield’s very own Gladiators.

Gladiators Boxing Academy in Huddersfield were awarded £20,040 by People’s Health Trust, using money raised by Health Lottery in Yorkshire & Humber.

This two-year project aims to expand the activities already on offer, so that more local people can benefit from the Gladiator’s Boxing Academy. There will be an exercise and coffee morning for individuals of all ages, a keep fit group for women, adult fitness and sessions for young people and children.

The project aims to provide a place where local people and those who are currently unemployed can come together and build trust, fostering long-standing friendships in the community.

Chris Lunn, The Health Lottery in Yorkshire & Humber spokesperson, said: “The funds raised through The Health Lottery Yorkshire & Humber are changing and improving lives. It was clear that supporting Gladiator’s Boxing Academy would have a great benefit to the community. To date, over £100 million has been raised through The Health Lottery for good causes across Great Britain, of which over £8.7 million has been raised for Yorkshire & Humber. We hope to make even more for good causes when Health Lottery Yorkshire & Humber opens in April 2019”.

Health Lottery Yorkshire & Humber is benefitting from Health Lottery tickets sold for all draws held between 1 April and 30 April 2019. You can purchase Health Lottery tickets in advance for these draws online at, or from more than 32,000 local retailers nationwide including The Post Office, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, ASDA, Morrisons and WH Smith.
