Nicola Adams: From Grassroots to Gold, A Champion’s Story – Aviva Community Fund

Win up to £25,000 in funding for your grassroots sports club – enter the Aviva Community Fund here: Nicola Adams MBE is the most successful female boxer in British history. She has reached the pinnacle of her sport, winning multiple titles, but she didn’t get there alone.  Thanks to the help and support of her grassroots club, Haringey Police Community Boxing Club, Nicola has learnt to be a champion boxer, pushed her body through the pain barrier and fought her way to the top despite a number of injury setbacks along the way. She owes a lot to the club and the coaches, and realises the important role clubs like Haringey play the community.  The Aviva Community Fund is a nationwide initiative lending a helping hand to grassroots sports clubs and community causes by offering funding of between £1,000 and £25,000.  This year, Aviva has introduced a ‘Sport in the Community’ category for the hundreds of thousands of grassroots sports clubs across the UK.
