Billy's Wish - set up in 2012 following the tragic death of Billy Dove - has been chosen as the Marlowes Charity of the Year.
The charity is committed to teaching young people about the dangers of knife crime and helping them learn skills to keep them safe throughout their lives.
Jan Maddern, Charity Director at Billy’s Wish, said: “We are delighted to be working with the Marlowes as it will help us reach a much wider audience. We have great plans for the future to help more young people make positive life choices.”

Vince Williams, Centre Director at The Marlowes, said: “Our partnership with Billy’s Wish will be a key part of our Marlowes Cares charitable programme.
“Throughout the year ahead, we will be working closely with Billy’s Wish to help it continue to raise awareness and funds through centre events and donation drives and by utilising our social media channels.”
