3: Bright Star Boxing

Listen on

Episode notes

Joe Lockley is creating a business with heart - Bright Star Boxing is a not-for-profit with big ambitions.

Joe talks about how his experiences growing up shaped his vision for the organisation, and how it benefits local communities. In this conversation, he also talks about how the support he offered had to change as a result of COVID, but also about the unexpected benefits that COVID created.

Joe is always looking for new opportunities to help people in need, and hopes that Bright Star Boxing can one day gain full charity status and help people both within and far beyond the Shropshire borders.
