Special 10th Year Memorial
SPECIAL MEMORIAL SKATE
On Friday 3rd February 2017, friends and family gathered together to skate in memory of the bubbly and fun loving young man who lost his life to youth on youth violence while out for the evening inside Streatham Ice Rink.
The day is usually a very sad and forlorn day which was turned into a celebration of Andre’s life to mark 10 years of living without him. We decided this special day would see us join together to remember his life and the reason he attended Streatham ice rink, to have fun and enjoy an evening out with friends.
Labour MP for Streatham, Chuka Umunna and local Councillors, Florence Eshalomi (nee Nosegbe) who is also the Lambeth and Southwark London Assembly Member and Marcia Cameron joined us on the day to also remember the lives of over 200 teenagers who have tragically died through youth on youth violence since 2007.
The evening saw 4 year olds to the over 40’s, grandparents, grandchildren, beginners to experts all just having fun. The day was a landmark for some, who have never skated since but who joined us on the ice for the first time since 2007.
Remember to put the date in your diary for our Family Skate Session 2018! and a huge huge thank you for making the day such a memorable one for us all.
