'Ill gotten gains' confiscated from convicted criminals will help a dedicated team continue taking their Love Music Hate Violence message to schools across Slough.

The Love Music Hate Violence campaign was the brainchild of Stephen Ambrose - best known in the area as DJ and music producer Stevoss, the organiser of the Britwell Youth and Community Project in Wentworth Avenue.

Stevoss and his team started visiting schools to spread the message last year after a spate of knife attacks in Slough.

The visits had to stop during lockdown but now the team is back in action and Thames Valley police have donated £6,000 towards the campaign.

The Love Music Hate Violence project featured last week in the BBC-1 show daytime Ill Gotten Gains, about how confiscated illegally earned funds are now used by police to help good causes.

A film crew visited Wentworth Avenue premises and recorded images of young people taking part in a lyric writing session, as well as interviewing Stevoss and his fellow campaigners Danny Butler and Uncle Gidz.

Meawhile the Love Music Hate Violence team are visiting schools again - although Stevoss says that inevitably some are still nervous about having visitors as new social distancing rules have to be carefully followed.

He said: "We are hoping things will gradually open up a bit more. We hope to get back to visiting one or two schools a week again."

Love Music Hate Violence has its own rap influenced anthem written by Stevoss and his good friend Uncle Gidz called Put Down the Knife and Gun.

They are now planning to stream it on all music platforms including Spotify.

Meanwhile any schools that would like a visit from the team are invited to contact Stevoss on stephen.ambrose@britwellyouthproject.org.uk
