The team behind the Hull Beats Bus have joined forces with the No More Knives project to create a hard-hitting video warning of the consequences of knife crime and making the right choices in life.
On Thursday July 4, the video will be launched to an invited audience at The Barrow Boys Bar on Hull Marina. The event will also feature music from The Beats Bus Crew plus special guest DJ and speaker, Grimsby actor Tommy Turgoose (This Is England). A Question and Answer session will be hosted by local author Russ Litten to a panel including Police and Crime Commissioner Keith Hunter, Beats Bus tutors plus Kayleigh Pepper and Mo Timbo from the No More Knives campaign, which recently received Home Office funding, secured by the Commissioner’s office, to educate young people about the dangers of knife crime.
Kayleigh launched the Rich Foundation after her brother Rich Pepper was stabbed to death in Hull in 2015. All proceeds from the single will be presented to The Rich Foundation. There will also be a fashion show by www.urbantrendz.co.uk Media are invited to attend and interviews with members of the team will be available on the night.
