Lions Centre to host Ben Kinsella Knife Crime Awareness Exhibition
The Millwall Community Scheme are excited to confirm that from late April the Lions Centre will be the new host venue for the Ben Kinsella Knife Crime Awareness Exhibition, and that the MCS will be working with the Ben Kinsella Trust to reduce knife crime in the capital.
The Ben Kinsella Knife Crime Awareness Exhibition is aimed at children and young people from 9 to 18 years and focuses on the tragic story of the brilliantly talented student Ben Kinsella and the devastating impact his death had on everyone who knew him.
The exhibition educates young people on making positive life choices, the laws and consequences of knife crime, staying safe and aims to stop young people from ever carrying a knife.
It includes films, interactive features and workshop activities to engage young people on the issues surrounding knife crime.
Millwall Community Scheme has a long history of working with young people to reduce youth violence.
Lions player Tamika Mkandawire is the current Football League Player in the Community for the work he did in supporting the 'Giving Youth Violence the Red Card' Campaign in Lewisham, and the work the MCS undertake through projects such as Kickz, Positive Futures and Street Pro continues to have an impact on reducing youth crime and anti-social behaviour in areas across both Southwark and Lewisham.
Details of how to book a visit to the exhibition will be available soon.
