Proud as punch ... FAMILIES taking part in the programme were invited to take part in a number of summer holiday activities, chosen by them. As part of their acitivity days, they attended the Grimsby Boxing Academy with owner Andy Cox. Andy has supported CatZero programmes for several years and hosted boxing training sessions at his gym, in Freeman Street.

encouraging them to join a series of summer activity days – including paediatric first aid and healthy cooking on a budget – along with assisting with day-to-day problems to achieve a successful future. Paige has also embarked on a Triple P parenting course. “It feels for the first time that someone is listening to me. I still have bad days, but they are much fewer and I understand the need to keep my mind busy and get on with my life,” said Paige.

A former professional, he is now one of the town’s best-known coaches and seeing people grow in confidence and ability is a rewarding part of his work. “Being part of projects like this is fantastic. Success for me is working with young people to see them grow and change some of the habits that have put them in the wrong situation,” said Andy.

“Sarah has helped us all so much – I have now opened my eyes and have seen a better life than before. My confidence is much better, and I can move forward. I see a bright future for Corbin,” added Paige. For more information on Full Families, please email Programme Manager Sean Cahill: sean@catzero. org

Happy faces: Paige, Kieran and Corbin enjoy time together.
