Tashan Daniel 1999 - 2019
Met-Track were offering sincerest condolences today to the family of 20-year-old Tashan Daniel, brutally stabbed to death in London yesterday. Coached by Met-Track's Josh Swaray, Tashan was a member of the scheme in Hillingdon, and had made huge positive strides in his life under his tutelage.
Tashan's family had repeatedly told Josh how he had become such a valuable role model in Tashan's life, improving his self confidence, and opening up a wholly positive take on his future. He only celebrated his 20th birthday on Sunday.
Met-Track CEO John Powell MBE said: "This is a tragedy, and you cannot imagine what something like this does to a family, and our thoughts are of course with them at this time. The people responsible for this need to look long and hard at themselves - they have brutally ended one life, and ruined their own."
Josh Swaray, who had seen his protege benefit so much from engaging with Met-Track was devastated at the news. "He was a wonderful human being and was a great kid in the project. This simply underlines in my mind just why we need schemes like Met-Track in London."
