Some good news in these odd times! Ben Wintour B'09 has been listed by Forbes on their 30 Under 30 List of Social Entrepreneurs for his charity, Steel Warriors, that he started with co-founder Pia Fontes.

Steel Warriors melt down knives taken off the streets by law enforcement and turn them into outdoor, calisthenic gyms in inner-city centres. Ben wrote about his story in the 2017 issue of The Blue Paper, a journey for which he can be incredibly proud. Ben commented "whilst our names are on the list, what Steel Warriors have achieved would not have been possible without the incredible and generous support that we have received along the way. Tens of companies and hundreds of individuals coming together who care about the world they live in and want to change it for the better.

We send our congratulations to Ben and Pia.
