Since Ben’s death, the Trust has received a huge amount of support as well as many generous donations which we plan to use primarily in the following ways to fulfill Ben's legacy:

  • To raise public awareness of knife-crime
  • To educate children of all ages of the consequences of knife crime and the devastating effect that it has on families
  • To build youth centres in Ben’s name

Above all, Ben’s family desperately urge anyone who carries a knife or weapon to lay it down and think about the pain and suffering they may cause.
