From gangs to groceries with the Power 1000
29th October 2014

Recently Michael Gonedro and Daniel Barnes were celebrating being named in the Evening Standard's 1000 power list.

They both could have been in the paper for different reasons if they'd pursued a life in London's gangs.

The two have used grants from the Evening Standard and charity Kids Company, to expand their removals business and offer a community outreach programme.

They told us business is going up and up and talk through the harrowing experiences they had growing up - and why they are so glad to be running their business instead.
