A host of dignitaries – including Byron Lewis, the Lord Lieutenant of West Glamorgan, and Dennis Keogh, the Mayor of Neath Port Talbot ñ were on hand to open a new assault course and playground built by boxing charity The Bulldogs in Port Talbot.

The Bulldogs is a partnership between Bulldogs Boxing & Communities Activities, a registered charity, and Port Talbot Amateur Boxing Club. As well as being a boxing club, it works with young people, to encourage them to make better life decisions, and SSAFA, the charity that provides lifelong support to serving men and women and Veterans from the British Armed Forces.

The new assault course in the grounds of the club will be used by all members to improve fitness and engender team spirit. It was funded by the Armed Forces Covenant, which works with businesses, local authorities, charities and community organisations to support the Armed Forces.

Says Stuart Phillips, trustee and head coach of The Bulldogs, 'I am so proud of what we have achieved since this place was first opened in 2008. We have helped more than a thousand people and this assault course represents the next chapter in our journey. Everyone has a background and a story, and we have helped many people, from young people to Veterans, turn their lives around by starting to come here.'
