She added, “In actual fact, the Black Bombers have started enjoying this package already. From the last week in April to the end of this month June, they have on daily basis with the exception of Sundays had free use of our boxing and fitness training facilities. They have also had the opportunity to receive free treatment at the physiotherapy of the Bukom Fitness/physio, one of our six facilities within the Trust Sports Emporium.”
