Independent charity Crimestoppers is holding a charity abseil event as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations that also asks local people to stop by to find out more about Crimestoppers and watch the abseil take place.
The abseil will see the charity’s regional manager for Yorkshire and the Humber, Gemma Gibbs, and a dozen other daredevils, abseil from the top of K2, a multi-functional living and workspace complex in Hull city centre. The event is part of the charity’s wider ‘CommuniTea’ event, which asks people to come along and have a brew and a chat about their crime concerns.
In the Humber area alone, over 2,200 pieces of actionable information were received by Crimestoppers in the year 2017/18, a 21% increase on the previous financial year.
Across the Humber, Crimestoppers has been making a positive impact to communities since 2010 when the volunteer committee was established. We’ve run campaigns on everything from Drink Driving, Child Sexual Exploitation and abuse, Fearless (our youth engagement element) and many more. We are immensely proud and grateful to all our volunteers and supporters, and we promise to continue making the Humber area a safer place.
Refreshments will be on offer at the event, and staff and volunteers from Crimestoppers will be present to chat with members of the community.
