On the 13th July 2017 LVE Charitable Foundation was happy to host a brilliant Met Police event at The Great Hall Leyton called Choices and Consequences.
Up to 128, 10 and 11 year olds took part in the final quiz-style competition, held at the Leyton Great Hall, which was provided at no cost by the Foundation.
Piloted by PCSO’s Lisa Saunders and John Duggan this initiative works with young people to increase awareness of knife crime, drugs, social media and criminal responsibility. John and Lisa have delivered their Choices and Consequences programme to year 6 pupils in schools that are within Trident hotspots and have links to high-risk secondary schools.
This good work culminated in a competition that involved 132 primary schools across 32 London boroughs. Each school has taken part in a series of challenges since November 2016, which involved activities to encourage positive engagement and increase contact with local police officers.
LVE Charitable Foundation was proud to be able to assist the Met Police with such positive and community-minded programmes. The kids seemed really to enjoy the day, which used fun, stimulating activities to deliver some serious topics.
