The House of Scouse
quick reads for those of you on the run. all things scouse are on offer as we ......
Bootle, a town so familiar, like many other towns around Merseyside. Bustling housing estates, Ket Wig armies based in Parks and some of the best people this country has to offer. A town like Bootle, doesn't really have many modern day heroes. Someone to offer inspiration, someone to grab the so called "Rough Kids" by the neck and show them they can make a difference to society.
A week on Friday at around 5pm, the doors of the Olympia will open wide and allow an army of Bootle heads into their famous venue. Hundreds of paying punters will be flocking from all parts of Bootle to show their support and appreciation to 42 fighters who have accepted the ultimate challenge. They have agreed to sacrifice seven months of their lives. Give up time with their family, their loved ones and getting punched in the face for their troubles.
When we first opened the doors in December 2015 to this coming Tuesday when we close them, we have had the pleasure of training 100s of men and women. We have changed people's lifestyles, improved their fitness and provided them with a skill they get to keep for life. The art of boxing has been instilled, the mindset of a warrior has been born and their wellbeing greatly improved.
Men and Women have literally shed blood, sweat and tears. We have seen broken bones, friendships blossom and a bonds created that will stand the test of time. Their name, their legacy and their hard work has been chiselled into Bootle folklore. Young autistic children, young disadvantaged children and men and women of all ages will benefit for the foreseeable future. The six long months of training and the one special night in June will enable a better way of life and unbelievable opportunities to better their lives.
The whole event has been one big team effort. Boxers, coaches, musicians, volunteers and workers have and will make this night like nothing you have ever witnessed. This isn't going to be just a boxing event, this occasion will be full of music, entertainment, boxing and a night of fundraising brilliance.
THEY DONE THIS ! THEY MADE THIS POSSIBLE AND THEY HAVE BECOME REAL LIFE HEROES THAT THIS TOWN CAN BE PROUD OF.
When they wake up on the Saturday morning, sporting a black eye, a thick lip and one hell of a hangover, they will be part of a select few. A group of people who can legitimately call themselves heroes, modern day fucking legends and role models for their family and friends. They can walk around their towns with their heads held high, a smile on the face and a place in the hearts of the whole city.
"Heroes Live Amongst us, Angels walk our streets."
