The Transform It! programme, in partnership with Groundwork, allows DHL employees to apply for funding grants for local projects that helps young people their community.

DHL Network Director, Nick Winder secured funding to help purchase new equipment, including  boxing gloves and head guards, for the young people who benefit greatly from the club. He and several DHL employees were also involved with the installation and renovation of the gym. 

To make use of the new equipment, Rectory ABCs, Phil Brennan invited Groundwork and DHL employees to a training session where the gloves were most definitely on!
