  • thehaveringdaily.co.uk

Friday 22 April was Stephen Lawrence Day, a day to remember Stephen and how he was murdered 29 years ago in an unprovoked racist murder on the streets of south London.

In honour of his name and to remember him, a special football match was held in south London by Kick Off @3, a youth mentoring programme that helps youngsters across the country. The day was organised by Michael Wallace, co-founder of Kick Off @3 and an amazing ambassador for our youth who has dedicated his life in helping youngsters through sport, music, art and poetry.

The special football match saw Yarnee football team take on the South London Kings and watched by some very important spectators such as Stephen’s brother Stuart Lawrence, former Chelsea and first black player to play for Chelsea Paul Canonville and former Met Police Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll who not only bought Stephen’s killers to justice but was also there to represent the Stephen Lawrence Foundation.

Many youngsters came to join in the day’s activities that also included a special minute silence where everyone linked arms in solidarity to remember Stephen.

The aim of the day was not only to remember Stephen and his legacy but also to promote encouragement and positivity for our youth.

Stuart Lawrence, Paul Canonville, Clive Driscoll and Michael Wallace talk about the special day’s event.
