A POOLE company is helping to rebuild a community hub and boxing gym that was once located at the foot of Grenfell Tower.

Staff at metal decking contractor Composite Profiles UK appeared alongside Nick Knowles on an episode of renovation programme DIY SOS last week.

During the programme, the Dale Youth Boxing Academy was re-housed under the A40 Westway, just metres from the derelict tower.

Composite Profiles’ managing director Mark Norton said the company was “privileged” to be involved.

“It was just instant fit with our culture to help provide a new sports and social space for the community,” he said.

“I am so pleased that we had the specialist knowledge and skilled installations teams required for the project.

“We have completed many projects along the M4 and A4 corridor and, as a result, we know how to overcome the logistical challenges of tricky access and building under a flyover.”

Before the devastating Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017, the first floor of the building was home to the boxing club.

Olympic gold medal winner James DeGale and current world champion George Groves trained there.

Graham Gater, chair of the club, thanked all who were involved in the rebuild for their “generous and immensely inspirational support”.

“We are really looking forward to getting a new space,” he said.

Nick Knowles said: “It’s daunting in terms of scale and size, even for us, but we all make an important statement when we come together to work on something so ambitious, so positive and so needed.”

The episode about the boxing club aired on September 5. Part two, which will feature a rebuild of the community hub, will air this week.
