Droitwich Amateur Boxing Club to take classes online for sufferers of Parkinson's Disease

Harry Leach 2nd Nov, 2020

A BOXING club which helps people suffering with Parkinson’s Disease will be taking its classes online this month.

Droitwich Amateur Boxing Club runs ‘Box Positive’ classes for individuals and groups of people suffering with the disease in hope of ‘reversing’ its affects.

Usually the Briar Mill club delivers non-contact boxing classes which help participants with their co-ordination and response times.

But with the second national lockdown this week, those classes will be moved to video conferencing platform Zoom.

Head coach Charles Delve, who is also a qualified occupational therapist, made the announcement on Twitter today.

While sharing a clip of this morning’s Parkinson’s fighters, he said: “These guys were relentless in their attack of Parkinson’s.

“We will be starting Zoom classes for people with Parkinson’s next lockdown.”

The classes follow the principles set out by the Parkinson’s UK exercise framework.

These classes incorporate activities that are fun as well as challenging with the aim to maximise people’s ability to carry out every day tasks independently.
