Across Great Britain there has been a surge in violent knife crime. The number of offences involving a knife or sharp instrument increased from just over 41,000 in the year to June 2018 to just over 44,000 in the last 12 months (ONS June 2019)
Knife crime affects people across the country and this activity invites pupils to reflect on, and pray for, those involved in knife crime. The activity is based around the Knife Angel built out of 100,000 knives that were handed to police in the UK.
