Boxing legend visits Marydale

Marydale Lodge, St Helens, received a very special guest recently.

Local boxing legend Martin Murray was only too pleased to spring a surprise visit on one of the young people in our care. He has developed a love of fitness and boxing during his time at Marydale and looked forward to training with our external fitness coaches.

Martin was more than happy to take time out to visit the home and spend time not only chatting about his own life experiences but he also managed a quick training session with our young person. Needless to say, he was delighted to have the opportunity to train with the champion himself and described the experience as “the best day of my life meeting my idol”.

Martin returned for a second visit bringing a signed copy of his inspirational story ‘Sinner and Saint’.

Here he is with Natalie, one of the dedicated staff at Marydale.
