Fight for Peace to host awards event in North Woolwich

A North Woolwich charity that offers youngsters hope using a combination of boxing and education will be holding its annual awards.

Fight For Peace was launched in 2007 to offer free education, sport and employment programmes to youngsters who have fallen out of the system. Since then the charity has gone from strength to strength with 3000 young people joining it.

It was set up by former boxing champion Luke Dowdney who came up with the idea for FFP while working for a charity with disadvantaged people in the slums of Brazil. Luke will be joined at the annual awards evening on Sepetmber 19 at the Fight for Peace London Academy in Woodman Street, North Woolwich, where he will be joined by Paul Smith, British Super Middleweight Champion Boxer,
