As you will have seen from our homepage, we have a big, bold mission and a powerful vision.
We are on a quest to change the story about knife crime – but we can’t do it on our own and we are so grateful to everyone that has helped us so far.
Over 40,000 of you have followed us on social media, helping us to spread the word about the difference we are trying to make.
Since Josh’s devastating murder in October 2015, every day has been a challenge, but we are very proud of what we have achieved in his memory.
Our very first event was a tandem skydive on Josh’s birthday, just four months after his death. We were granted charity status on 1st December 2016 and, since then, we have held Football Tournaments, Fun Days, 5K Fun Runs and Workshops. Through our fundraising events, and with support from The Waitrose Community-Funding Project, the Halifax Bank, Brent Cross Match Funding and the Lottery Fund we are changing the story about the knife crime.
We still have a long way to go if we are going to achieve the change we want to see and we would love you to come on this journey with us. Please help us change the story of knife crime forever.
