Teamwork was a hit between amateur boxers from Peterborough police and a centre for adults with learning disabilities.
The police boxing club forged a partnership with the FACET centre in Marwick Road, March, when they held a fun boxing event at the centre.
Around 30 FACET students took part in a range of healthy-living pad-touch exercises and some fun racing events which proved to be hugely successful amongst the students.
The boxing was arranged after FACET students enjoyed a day of activities at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough, organised by the charity Inspire.
They met with some of the amateur police boxers and the partnership was set up.

The morning was rounded off with a presentation of a prize winning t-shirt presented to FACET student Nicky Moody by Chris Baker, chairman of the Peterborough Police Amateur Boxing Club.
