A heritage project in Local Boxing

Fighting for Our Heritage is a Heritage Lottery Funded Project being run out of Pat Benson's Boxing academy in Digbeth, Birmingham.

The project was envisaged by Ann Strach and her fellows Paddy Benson, Cianan X and Bradley X who have come together to tell a story.  These people were inspired by a love of their sport and a commitment to their local community to draw attention to an often overlooked, yet signifcant, feature in the history of Birmingham and its people - 'The boxing boys and girls of Brummagen'.
