“I participated in boxing lessons whilst at Mary Seacole which helped me to channel my anger appropriately. I have fond memories from my time with Mary Seacole; building friendships and participating in the Mary Seacole Housing Association Sports Day – I never enjoyed group events before; but at Mary Seacole, I was always made to feel comfortable.” – Solance
