Boxing sheddie gets OBE

Another sporting sheddie.

Mr. Gareth Howells Boxing Coach. For services to Young People in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire
82yrs (Llanelli, Carmarthenshire)

In 1942 he started Trostre Amateur Boxing Club (ABC), then Bynea ABC, in a garden shed in Llanelli, eventually finding a permanent home in Trostre, Llanelli. He has worked tirelessly in a voluntary capacity to train local youngsters for over 60 years.

He is as dedicated now as he was in 1942, spending his evenings working at the gym to develop and inspire young boxers to become good athletes and well rounded citizens.
