The Knife Angel Hereford team is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a £10,000 grant from The National Lottery Community Fund.


Alison Davies and Meryl Cain are joint leaders of the KAH Team bringing the Knife Angel to Hereford, Alison said:


“Thanks to National Lottery players for helping to make our project possible. We will be able to make a huge difference by financing youth workshops, schools’ and colleges’ educational programmes, conferences, outreach work and community engagement.  We will be able to increase awareness of the catastrophic impact violence and aggression has on individuals, families and the community as a whole. We are truly grateful for the support of National Lottery Funding.”

Plans are progressing well to bring the Knife Angel to Hereford Cathedral this summer. In the event dates have to be adjusted in line with Public Health England’s advice, further announcements will be made.

Throughout its time in the city, people will be able to visit the Knife Angel (socially distanced or as required by COVID restrictions) free of charge. Contingency plans will be put in place to hold the above listed events remotely, if physical events remain prohibited. 

The Knife Angel stands 27ft tall and is made from over 100,000 knives and blades received from 42 police forces across the UK. Created by Alfie Bradley out of the British Ironwork Centre in Oswestry, the Knife Angel has toured around the UK and has become recognised as a National Monument Against Violence and Aggression.

The Knife Angel Hereford team would welcome additional donations or offers of support from Hereford businesses or individuals.
