This month has seen the completion of a striking mural inside Scrappers gym. The mural was painted as part of moving the boxing gym to a new location and it’s hoped to inspire kids and adults alike to build on their boxing skills.

Boxing gym owner Olivia says: “We would like to thank everyone involved in creating this amazing boxing wall and art work in the new Scrappers Community Boxing Gym premises”

Scrappers Gym is a community organisation that welcomes people of all ages and abilities to learn and develop their boxing abilities. It is praised for its great community spirit and inclusive atmosphere. The painting for the boxing wall masterpiece was done by some of Swindon’s best community artists Nathan Jacka and Cello Assini using paint from Community RePaint Swindon and additional spray paints.

Olivia says, “We wanted to add some much-needed colour to the gym and create a large mural that would inspire children and adults when they enter the gym.”
