The Godwin Foundation event on young people and gang culture

In October, Meg attended this event, organised by The Godwin Foundation in honour of Godwin Lawson, who tragically lost his life to a knife crime in March 2010.

The event highlighted the work the foundation does to promote an awareness of the positive role that sport and education can have in challenging gang culture and the use of weapons as a status symbol.
