On Tuesday June 17th 2008 David Idowu (aged 14 years) was stabbed very closed to his home when playing football at the local park. Twenty days later he died in hospital as a result of his injuries. As with previous years my team of Southwark Young Advisors are working with David's family to assist them in setting up the 'David Idowu Peace Event 2018' in memory of David and all young people lost to violent crime. This year the event will be held at Tabard Gardens SE1 on Saturday 13th July 2019. Set up 11am-12 midday. Event: 12 midday till 6pm.
The event attracts approximately 400+ young people + the wider community of all age groups. On the day there are performances from young local talent, key speakers, Mad about football - football tournament (run by Active communities/Millwall community) etc. and the event will be attended by the parents of other young people lost to violent crime from across London.
