Pastor Lorraine Jones ‘Turning Pain into Power through the Power of Love’
Lorraine’s son Dwayne was a few months short of his 21st birthday when he was fatally stabbed in Brixton in 2014. He was acting as a peacekeeper helping a younger boy and died as a result. Dwayne was from Brixton’s Angell Town Estate and had created a boxing club to address its lack of facilities for young people. In her talk Lorraine shares her quest to turn Pain into Power, relaunching the boxing scheme as Dwaynamics in his memory. Dwaynamics helps young people develop life skills through boxing, training, mentoring and employability workshops.
