Making waves to stop knife crime
On Sunday 6th of August, Christopher De Belder and Andrew Goodvin will dive in to the muddy, cold waters of the Thames to raise money for the Ben Kinsella Trust. Here is Christopher's story
"London has seen a dramatic surge in knife crime resulting in 11 youngsters being the victim of fatal stabbing incidents in the last 2 months alone, including the tragic loss of the son of one of our colleague's in May this year.
Together with my colleague Andrew Goodvin, we want to raise awareness of knife crime and support the Ben Kinsella Trust in their mission to provide educational workshops to young people to deter them from carrying knives.
On the 6th of August, Andrew and I will be swimming 9 miles along the Thames from Henley to Marlow. We hope our swimming challenge will inspire you to make a donation to this worthy charity and support its efforts in reducing knife crime."
