Youth groups create community mural

Our Youth Services team worked with groups of young people on the Cambridge Road Estate in Kingston to create a striking wall mural with an anti-knife crime theme, teaming up with the Drop a Knife Save a Life campaign and Kingston Council.

About 20 young people were involved in its implementation: from coming up with the design, through to painting under the expert tuition of Tom from We Are Sky High. It was made even more powerful by the participation of Sophie from Drop a Knife Save a Life campaign, whose son Derick was tragically killed near to the location.
