    MK Dons SET will be providing Bleed Kits to the community, which contain lifesaving equipment to administer basic first aid.

    Throughout December, MK Dons Sport & Education Trust raised awareness for violent crime within Milton Keynes as part of a month of action against violent crime in the city.

    Since the month, MK Dons SET has announced it is set to continue its campaign.

    MK Dons SET will be providing Bleed Kits to the community, which contain lifesaving equipment to administer basic first aid.

    The kits contain pressure bandages, tourniquets, a chest seal dressing and other medical equipment that can stop stab victims from bleeding to death.

    The month of action against violent crime was marked at Stadium MK with the National Monument Against Violence and Aggression, also known as the Knife Angel.

    The Knife Angel is a 27ft sculpture, made from approximately 100,000 bladed weapons collected in knife amnesty bins during police operations across the country. 

    Created by the British Ironwork Centre, the monument travels to locations around the UK as a focal point to help educate children and adults about the harmful effects that violent behaviour has on communities.

    Over 3,000 messages of reflection, condolence & pledges against violence surrounded the Knife Angel while it was in MK with over 700 people viewing the sculpture each day.

    The month of action in Milton Keynes included a partnership between Thames Valley Police, the Office for the Police and Crime Commissioner, Milton Keynes City Council, MK Dons Sports and Educational Trust and The Safety Centre Charity Hazard Alley.

    Throughout the month, the partnership hosted numerous activities, designed by those who live and work in the city to bring together schools and parents, voluntary sector organisations, places of worship, community groups, local venues and businesses to tackle violence in all its forms.
