On June the 20th at Harrow Lodge Park, the Youth Unity Festival will be launched. It will be one of the biggest festivals the borough has seen encouraging youngsters to come and have their say.
A spokesperson for the Youth Unity Festival told the Havering Daily:
“A sad statistic is Havering’s knife crime has risen by 85% in three years and it’s not easing up! As a community we need to act if we are to make a change.
“We are calling to all businesses to help support this project, financially or in kind.”
Youth Unity is a borough-wide community programme of youth focussed outreach engagement to include all types of sport, football the focus along with many other activities encouraging young people to become involved in after school activities and sign up to programmes for the summer term.
