Alison, skydiving for this cause is a tremendously generous, brave and selfless act on your part. You and all those who are helping to make this visit possible are heroes. The question remains why is it necessary for people to throw themselves out of aircraft to fund the visit and campaign? Where's the high vis high impact government campaign and actions to combat knife crime, the causes of such crimes and the provision of proven social and economic interventions including youth clubs, alternative ways of getting employment / education, generating more employment opportunities and the alleviation of disadvantage and poverty. The underlying problems must be tackled and the answer isn't simply ramping up policing, imposing harsher sentences and sending people to underfunded prisons that have extremely limited scope to turn lives around.
