Combating street violence
Representatives from BGP were proud to be guests at Charlton last week along with members of the Charlton Trust to celebrate the grant of £139,450 from the Football Foundation to support its work to combat street violence.
BGP have been working closely with Charlton and the trust in this community based project. BGP’s innovative software platform FEDS is used by the team’s community coaches to assist them in their day to day administration of the programme.
Both the Charlton and Leyton Orient teams, along with the match officials came on to the pitch wearing Street Violence Ruins Lives T-shirts.
Also present were Colin and Sally Knox whose son Rob was murdered in Sidcup in 2008. They have since set up the Rob Knox Foundation in Rob’s memory. More information on the trust, and how to support this extremely worthwhile cause.
