Be Lucky's Jamie Hart, who works with Paul at Lucky 13 tattoo parlour, hoped the awareness raising drive would help emphasise that knife crime concerns everyone in society.

Help on the day came from volunteers including local Round Table members, while more supporters attended the Kickoff@3 charity football day in Bromley, where two Suffolk teams competed.
