Southwark unite against knife crime

Southwark has the worst knife crime rate out of all of the London Boroughs with an average of more than two incidents involving knives happening every day.

Members of the local community are now uniting against violence and are crowd funding for £15,000  to create a peace garden in the grounds of the Walworth Methodist Church. 

The space designed by local students will be a place people can come together and reflect as well as an area where young people can be educated against violence.
