Skydiving for a good cause

I’ve been inspired to blog today by a very brave family from the south west – one of my favourite parts of the UK.

Last year Shevon Wilson, a Bristol teenager, tragically lost his life to knife crime. In Shevon’s memory, his family organised a sponsored skydive over Salisbury Plain to raise money for Fearless, Crimestoppers’ brand for young people, and to raise awareness about the dangers of knives.

Last weekend nine of Shevon’s family members took part in the 13,000 ft skydive. What a brave and inspirational thing to do. If you want to support this great event and cause, you can make a donation through Virgin Money Giving.

Knife crime is a serious issue in society today and one that we all have to work together to fight. If you have any information about knife crime remember that you can always use Crimestoppers' knife crime texting service to pass on information.

P.S – Hopefully we’ll have some photos from the skydive to post soon!
