Luke Campbell encourages sporting volunteers in Hull

Luke Campbell at Woodford Leisure Centre today

Hull's Olympic champion Luke Campbell put youngsters through their paces at an event to inspire volunteers today.

Youth Workers from the city, working with St. Pauls Boxing Club, were at Woodford Leisure Centre to promote sport in the city.

The event is part of the Join In Summer 2013, the official volunteering legacy project from the Games.

Running over the anniversary period of the Games, the scheme will see over 10,000 local events put on across the UK, aiming to attract half a million people and 100,000 new volunteers.

Pauline Beach, from Hull City Council, said: "Since the Olympics we have seen an increase in volunteering, of people of all ages and all walks of life. This event provides another chance for people to find out more about the benefits of volunteering and what opportunities there are in Hull."
