Anti knife crime hero joins forces with East Area police to install bleed kit unit in Hornchurch pub.


Julie Taylor is a local hero and first becoming a national hero by making it her mission to provide as many bleed kits and units for key areas across the country. The campaigning grandmother lost her 19 year old grandson Liam ‘Fish’ Taylor to knife crime two years ago and has since then launched the Liam Taylor Legacy.

Julie works hand in hand with Lynne Baird from the Daniel Baird Foundation that provides these life saving bleed kits and units that are approved by the London Ambulance Service.

Yesterday, Tuesday 10 May, Julie joined forces with Sergeant Jane Collard from East Area police who has been supporting Julie and her campaign in providing these bleed kits for the local area. Following the installation of a bleed kit in Romford town centre, Sergeant Jane and Sergeant Sarah Wolfe and Romford Town Centre Team A police officers all chipped in to buy another bleed kit for their area.

Yesterday, the two community heroes came together to place a bleed kit unit in memory of Liam at the Fatling pub in Hornchurch. Landlady Sandy Castle who does a lot of charity work across Havering, was very pleased to have the unit placed outside her pub.

These units and kits are life saving tools that stop any catastrophic bleeding from knife crime, gun shot wounds or road traffic accidents.

A huge thank you to electrician Sam who stepped in at the last minute and took time out of his busy schedule, to come and fit the unit outside of the Fatling yesterday.

You are all amazing community heroes and clearly show that when the community comes together, everything is achievable.
