Rose and Crown's fun day in Kings Langley held in bid to cut knife crime and raise funds for Billy’s Wish foundation
A fun day was held at a Kings Langley pub on Saturday in memory of a man who was killed in 2011.
The event was organised by Steve Hulme, who works at the Rose and Crown in High Street, and raised money for Billy’s Wish foundation, which was started by the parents of Billy Dove after he was stabbed on a night out.
The charity aims to raise awareness about knife crime among other young people.
Mr Hulme said: "It was really good and went really well, we raised just under £1,600. Everyone was saying how the day went really well and everyone seemed to have a good time."
The fun day was a family friendly event with a bouncy castle, games, live music and a BBQ.
Saturday’s event was the second fundraising day the pub had organised, and Mr Hulme said: "It was my turn to organise the event and, rather than just going with one of the well known charities, I wanted to choose something a bit more close to home. I knew Billy from going out and socialising. Paul, his dad, came along to the pub later on in the day too."
