Michael Pusey MBE aka DJ CK Flash
For the past 12 years, Michael Pusey, aka DJ CK Flash has been working in the heart of Peckham, engaging large numbers of young people in the Sport of BMX. He was responsible for establishing Peckham BMX sports club and CIC. He has worked with some of the hardest to reach young people from Peckham and surrounding boroughs and engaged them in grass roots sports, working hard to motivate them to commit to training and reach a level where they could compete and represent their club and community. Today Peckham BMX is the number one BMX club in the UK, with four of its member’s part of the Olympic development team Plus they have produced two girls that were world number two and world number three in 2015 and two riders out of four that are on the Olympic team for the Rio Olympics. All of this has been achieved purely through the hard work and determination of CK, who would not give up on the young people he worked with and encouraged them to believe in themselves, and work hard to achieve.
In the New Year’s Honours List 2016, CK was awarded an MBE recognising the hard work he has done to dramatically change the life of hundreds of young people. This has motivated him to work even harder to ensure that every young person in Peckham and beyond is given the best opportunities to live a positive life and be the best that they can be and through his work in the community over the past 12 years, he has been able to see first-hand the positive impact you can have on a young person’s life and journey in to adulthood. By providing them grass roots opportunities, giving them a place where they belong and feel empowered to take control and by proving that if you believe in young people, are consistent with your messages that you really can make a difference to their young lives.
As well as supporting young people, CK has 2 main passions, sport and music.
Those that know CK, will tell you what a larger than life character he is, how driven he is and how his passion and commitment to helping others is infectious. He sees the positive in every situation and in every person and wants to give young people the opportunity to make a better life for themselves. Over the past 12 years, he has worked with hundreds of young people and provides a realistic positive role model who young people can look up to. Over his career in the music and sports world he has built up great partnerships with a number of organisations, all who are keen to support Ck.
“Giving back to the community of where we all grew up is something that means a lot to me, along with creating positive role models for the young people that are growing up in our community. It is important to show them that if they work hard and have full commitment to whatever they put their mind to then they will be rewarded just like myself with the MBE in 2016. There is no future without the young generation so we need to set a platform for younger adults so they can bring the young people coming behind them from sport education with the right role models this can be achieved from now and always”.
