Business punch

Staff at top 10 City firm Lovells and independent business-led charity Business in the Community proved they’re a fighting force by taking part in a charity boxing match to raise money for London-based community organisation YourStory.

Thanks to Fitzroy Amateur Boxing Club, the teams are now very accomplished with a skipping rope and, if you look around Lovells’ Atlantic House headquarters, you’ll probably see some of the team members taking every opportunity to shadow box in front of any reflective surface. One Lovells team member told the Snail: “There was a lot of perspiration, but thankfully no tears and no blood. And that was just in relation to the legal work.”

YourStory provides specialist work to hard-to-reach groups through career programmes, mentoring and sports development, as well as running sexual health and relationship workshops.
