Who are we?

Alison Davies lost her son Mark to knife crime in December 2018 and together with Meryl Cain and a small group of friends wanted to raise awareness of the catastrophic impact violent crime has on individuals, families and communities. The team’s involvement with this project is carried out on a voluntary basis. The group are known as The Knife Angel Hereford Team.

What is the Plan?

The Knife Angel is coming to Hereford on June 14 – July 12 2021 hosted by Hereford Cathedral. During the Knife Angel’s visit we will run a series of workshops and interactive events. It is envisaged that this initiative will continue after the Knife Angel leaves Hereford. The majority of host towns & cities to date have had a knife amnesty whilst the Angel is in situ. We will have a general weapons amnesty, with the approval of West Mercia Police. There is a “weapon surrender” secure bin which travels with the Angel.

Events

During the Knife Angel’s stay in Hereford, there will be;

  • Series of free public workshops and events at The Cathedral and venues in the City.
  • National Conference, engaging with professionals in related spheres. This will be an online, ticketed event.
  • Youth Conference, identifying young people’s needs and issues which they feel have a negative impact on them and their community.
  • Weapon amnesty in operation for the duration of the Angel’s visit, approved by West Mercia Police, a secure weapon surrender bin travels with The Angel.
  • Opening Ceremony and Closing Vigil.

Funding

Knife Angel Hereford need to raise funds to cover the cost of workshops, conferences, promotional campaigns and literature, printing costs, lighting, plus 24-hour security and insurance for this valuable and unique statue.
