Connexin announces partnership with Hull-based community gym ‘The Copperbox'


Today we’re pleased to announce our partnership with Hull community gym The Copperbox.

Based in the newly renovated K3 Business Park on Clough Road, the Copperbox gym in Hull is a local boxing club, fitness, and wellbeing centre hosting some of the biggest youth boxing matches in the city.

This partnership will see our organisations come together with the goal of increasing engagement with local communities and young people throughout Hull.

Full-fibre broadband connectivity for local communities in Hull

Last year, Connexin began building our own full-fibre network in Hull to bring more broadband choice to the city and have since expanded into Beverley, Cottingham, and Scarborough as we continue to build on our mission to become ‘The biggest alt-net in the North’. This commitment forms part of our ongoing promise to invest locally and bring meaningful benefits to the region.

Paul Mays, Owner and Founder of The Copperbox, said: 

“We are over the moon about our partnership with Connexin. There’s an incredible atmosphere inside The Copperbox, and having the help and support from Connexin will be amazing. We are very excited for 2023, engaging with many young people and adults around the community.

The Copperbox and Connexin team have the passion, desire, and dedication to help change the community to live healthier, more active lives. Here’s to a knockout 2023!”

Katie Muir, Head of Brand at Connexin, said: 

“Having met Paul and the Copperbox team, it was immediately clear they have a real passion and care for our city. It’s fantastic to see the work they are putting in to engage with our local community — specifically the support they provide our young people — after what has been a difficult few years for people stuck at home.

We’re delighted to be working with The Copperbox gym in Hull. I’m excited for us to support them in growing the Hull boxing community and, hopefully, we can give some more young people an outlet that helps them improve their mental health and well being.”
