We are one of the main sponsors for the Rich Foundation and its #NoMoreKnives Tour which launched in September 2018 in Hull. The tour visited schools throughout the city spreading the #NoMoreKnives message, it included talks from Kayleigh Pepper, the founder of the Rich Foundation and a vic m of knife crime, Mo, an ex gang member who is now a Pastor, Humberside Police and a performance by a number of bands, culminating in a show at the Bonus Arena for students.
The tour was so successful that Phase 2 has been approved to take the tour across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. In addition to this we then assisted in bringing the Knife Angel to Hull, this is the national monument against violence and aggression built ultimately for the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square. The monument is made from 100,000 blades, all used in some form of crime, given up in the knife amnesties that have taken place up and down the country.
We love to get involved in charity work! Our offices are always taking part in fundraising events from Children in Need and Red Nose Day to arranging present donations from staff, clients and candidates to take to under- privileged children in the Yorkshire and Lincolnshire areas at Christmas. Last year saw donations to the local children’s hospital, children’s home and a number of charities for disabled children and sick children.
Community is at the heart of what we do and we frequently support our local schools. Most recently we were informed that the students of a local primary had never been to a pantomime at Christmas, so we surprised them with transport to take them to a local show.
