World Champion boxer Richie Woodhall has joined forces with Crimestoppers to encourage people in Telford to support their community by passing on information to Crimestoppers anonymously.
Richie launched his Fight Crime campaign at a press conference at the Telford Ice Rink, where he won his World Championship belt.
You might remember me blogging previously about Ricky Hatton and his crime campaign in Greater Manchester. It's great that within the past few months the Crimestoppers charity has had two very talented and inspiring individuals front campaigns.
Of the new campaign, Richie said: “So many people suffer as a result of the activities of criminals. I would encourage local people to have the courage and fight crime without revealing their identity by contacting Crimestoppers.”
Taxis with Richie's face and crime message on them (just like the one on the left) are going to all around the streets of Telford. If you see one, take a photo and send it in! I'd love to see one in action.
