We’re Bright Star

Bright Star is a volunteer led organisation working with vulnerable people across Shropshire and Telford. As well as our Shifnal based boxing club, we run a number of education and community programmes to support vulnerable groups and help young people transform their life and achieve their goals.

We’re run by a dedicated team of volunteers and have a great reputation for success, supported by our key partners across Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin.

The Bright Star Boxing Club is based in Shifnal. Everyone is welcome, and we run a variety of sessions across the week – whether you’re a complete beginner wanting to try boxing for the first time or looking to compete. We run sessions for all age groups too, led by our experienced coaches.

Our successful Bright Star Futures education programme supports young people aged 10-16 needing alternative education provision.

Our Bright Star Community sessions use a combination of boxing and support to help different vulnerable groups. These include Empower groups for those unemployed, our Counterpunch mental health sessions and our Stay True programme for those at risk of criminal exploitation. 

We’re really making a difference. We’ve proven that anyone can achieve amazing things with boxing and the right support, driving positive and lasting life changes.
