Woman to Woman
Pastor LORRAINE JONES’ son was a few months short of his 21st birthday when he was fatally stabbed London in 2014. He wasn’t in a gang – in fact he was acting as a Peace Keeper helping a younger boy who was being chased and died as a result. His name was Dwayne Simpson. He was from Brixton’s Angell Town Estate & had created a boxing club to address its lack of facilities for young people. The project had a positive impact on the well-being of young people in the area and Dwayne’s death affected the whole community. His mum re-launched the boxing scheme as Dwaynamics to honour his memory. The scheme helps young people develop life skills through boxing and fitness, training, mentoring and employability workshops.
