1 Knife Crime Now Happens On Our Streets Every 16 Minutes

Violence on our streets is at its highest since records began and the problem continues to spread. Leaving more mothers to mourn their children and so much future potential wasted.

#DROPTHEKNIFE is a National program, delivering powerful workshops and effective mentoring to young people in who are at high risk of losing their lives and futures to knife crime and gang violence.

Will Flint set up Drop The Knife after he was a stabbed 12 times in 2017 after he intervened when he saw being attacked on the street.  When he did her attacker turned on him, stabbing him 12 times, leaving him bleeding out with a punctured lung, severed spleen and lacerated stomach.

Now, despite still having a permanently paralysed left lung, Will is going to be attempting to scale the steep 5380m climb alongside Dave, Alex and Paul, up to Everest Base Camp.

This sponsored climb seemed like a fitting tribute:  with 5380 being the same number of people admitted to hospital last year as a result of a knife attack.

All sponsorships go directly to funding the workshop and mentoring work Drop The Knife are doing in schools and colleges, helping to prevent our Country’s young from being lost to a life of knife crime and gang violence.

Please support the boys by sponsoring to the cause!
