An audio Play telling the stories of victims of knife crime in the uk.
A young girl in school, a mother and her teenage son, a young woman on a family visit, a man just doing his job, a girl moving to a ‘safe’ area and a boy who is now a man stared death in the face…twice. All these people have one thing in common and they lived to tell the tale.
Epidemic is a collection of personal accounts to do with Knife Crime. The radio play will give you an insight into the life changing effects holding a knife and being at the end of it can do.
All money raised will go to the Godwin Lawson Foundation that help, guide and push our young people in the right direction!
reason behind epidemic
Knife Crime is nothing new. The sad thing is, it happens a lot in my area. But something happened closer to home which made me act on doing something about it. I wasn't ignorant to it, I just didn’t know how to help. Until God dropped this idea in me and so I had to listen and run with it.

Where your support will go
The Godwin Lawson Foundation (GLF) is a registered charity founded in 2012 by Yvonne and Calvin Lawson to commemorate the life of their son, Godwin Lawson. Godwin was stabbed in the street in Stamford Hill, trying to prevent two of his old school friends from being attacked by four young men. He was just 17.
Godwin Lawson's aim is to reduce gun and knife crime by encouraging young people to identify their talents and fulfill their potential through providing positive opportunities so that they can avoid gang life and develop their capabilities as members of a tolerant society.
