In 2008 we delivered a ten week boxing academy programme in partnershp with Broad Plain Boxing Club in Bristol. The programme taught fitness, discipline and the art behind boxing.

During this time we met Mike, who shortly joined us in the community on release on temporary licence. From the start his ability was inspiring and after a move to London, Mike joined the Cricket for Change (now Change Foundation) team and started using sport to prevent others from following in his footsteps.

Mike was also featured in the tv series 'Skool of Hard Knocks' and shortly after became part of the Lawrence Dellalio Foundation. Mike is still a dear friend and an inspiration to all whom have the pleasure of meeting him.
