Donating a total of £30,000 to the St Helens based Martin Murray Academy, Miller Developments and McLaren Construction have joined forces to help hard-to-reach young people with high quality social support and development through the Academy’s ThinkFAST programme.

The six week programme, which is supported by schools and parents, involves offering guidance to students of the Academy through the teaching of coping mechanisms, keep-fit and boxing.

The ThinkFAST student benefits include working alongside boxing coaches as strong and inspiring role models, where they are taught fitness, teamwork, anger management and discipline skills, alongside how to improve concentration and confidence through positive engagement and empowerment.
