A new look gym was the calling card at the Whitton Youth Zone as it was relaunched.

The space is operated by Achieving for Children whose mission is to provide children and their families with the support and services they need to live happy, healthy, successful lives.

Equipment for the gym was donated by Matrix Fitness, who also provided boxing gear from Hatton Boxing and arranged training for the Youth Zone’s staff so they can deliver sessions as well.

Richmond Mayor Ben Khosa was on hand at the relaunch and said: “It was great to be at Whitton Youth Zone for the relaunch of this fantastic new community space for our borough’s young people.

"I was truly impressed by what is on offer at the centre and was delighted to see so many young people getting involved.”
