Well, this is my first post for the knife crime blog.
'Miles not Knives' has been running for just over a year and in that time has grown in membership and I hope has established itself as an anti-knife group that does more then just sit on Facebook saying loads but doing nowt.
Much of my campaigning has been across London and I've met some amazing people. But I am hoping to do even more campaigning, including the strongest focus on raising knife crime awareness among even more people in 2010.
A 250-mile walk from Darlington to London is planned for later this year and I would also like to raise money for four other charities that help victims and their families.
I know I have been nominated for an award with a national paper, but that award in my eyes is for all those who believed in what I am trying to do.
Sadly I can't promise to end knife crime, but together we can try and save more lives than the numbers we have been losing at present. With more awareness we can do that.
