This week, MK Dons, MK Dons Sport & Education Trust (SET) and Stadium MK were recognised for the work and efforts undertaken during the Knife Angel ‘Month of Action’.
The Club received Certificates of Recognition from Assistant Chief Constable Dennis Murray and High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, for work raising the profile of anti-violence and Knife Crime.
Milton Keynes hosted the National Monument Against Violence and Aggression (Knife Angel) at Stadium MK throughout December 2022 - a month of action which saw the community stand together against violence of all forms.
Planned events took place throughout December across the city to raise awareness and knowledge of how to keep safe as well as the impact of knife crime on communities. MK Dons SET, in particular, provided workshops and engaged in educational activities for schools and youth groups, supporting over 3,500 young people at Stadium MK.
Following the month of action, MK Dons SET have since worked with Pink Punters and Jason Fathers to develop and install ‘Serious Bleed Kits’ across Milton Keynes. Having already raised £2,000 to install 50 kits across Milton Keynes, the target is to provide as many bleed kits to make the communities of Milton Keynes safer and to best prepare for events of ‘serious bleeds’.
