Stephen Gowers from ‘Take A Knife Save A Life’ has put a call out to all parents in the borough to come out and spare an hour a day during school time to be a bus stop monitor.
Following the increase in muggings and robberies of school children in the borough, Stephen is now asking for volunteers to please come out and spare an hour in their day to help be a bus stop monitor.
Stephen told the Havering Daily:
“I’m tired of hearing about our children being mugged on the way home from school. I’d like to ask parents and carers across the borough if they could please come and join Take A Knife Save A Life and become bus stop monitors.
“With bus stop monitors our children can have a safe please to go when they leave school.”
Stephen and Kevin Greenwood have also set up a ‘Second Chance class’ for local youths in the area who have had difficulties. The pair teach boxing classes at Greenwood’s boxing gym in Hornchurch and have been helping getting children off the street and into boxing classes.
