Floyd Steadman Waterside Visit

28 July 2022

Former rugby captain and Windrush generation child, Floyd Steadman, joined young people at Waterside earlier this month.

The event was organised by social enterprise BoxWise, who have partnered with Berkshire Youth to deliver a number of free non-contact boxing programmes at the centre for young people aged 12 -16 – a ‘safe space to channel energies productively and positively’ for young people from a variety of backgrounds and upbringings.

Floyd gave an inspirational speech about his life and career, encouraging the young people to seek out the opportunities open to them and telling them that they can go on to have successful careers.

He said: “I’m proud to support BoxWise, a non-profit social enterprise launched by the Nick Maughan Foundation, that provides young people with professional training in boxing, guidance and mentorship.

“The solution to youth violence lies in creating an environment that stops people from turning to a life of crime in the first place, which is an area BoxWise is doing essential work in.”
