Former England and Great Britain Boxer Hannah Beharry has a string of gold medals under her belt. Hannah is a role model for the positive influence of sport. In 2004, at the age of 17 years old, Hannah found herself in a downward spiral, living a life of crime, with no education and facing an unimaginable future.

In 2005, Hannah stepped into one of London’s most prominent boxing clubs All Stars.  She competed as a serious contender in amateur boxing, later receiving a high status as one of the leading female boxers in the UK.

By 23 she became a member of Haringey Police Boxing Club, and has taken control of her life by acting as a strong model for local communities by promoting boxing in schools. Hannah was set to represent Great Britain in boxing for Team GB in 2012, however, due to injuries she just missed out on the chance.

Hannah has now become a positive ambassador by being a positive influence on people’s lives through her behaviour. She has been involved in various subjects of media interest, with an appearance on BBC News at Excel London the boxing venue for 2012. 

Giving Back

Hannah also coaches hopefuls, including offenders and young people from all different backgrounds; she also works as an athlete mentor travelling all over England inspring and mentoring young people to achieve their best.

“Sport has helped me changed my life around. If I hadn’t started up boxing I don’t know if I would have been doing this amazing job that I get to do now”.

Hannah has delivered many programmes for the Trust including school based programmes such as On Track to Achieve and AQA Unlocking Potential as well as leading on Get on Track.
