Name: Maye Brown and Sheraye Johnson
Age: 18
Year of the Fix: 2009
Location: Chapeltown, Leeds
Campaign: To prevent gun and knife crime

We know of people who have been affected by knife and gun crime and want to show young people that there is a better alternative to street culture, like studies and a good education.

 

We decided to write a song and, with the help of Fixers, create a music video, speaking out against violent crime.

 

Our message is simple, think twice about carrying a gun or a knife.

Thank you the following for helping us with our Fix:

 

Hayley Crisholm Shanade Fraser
Chloe Burkinshaw Chanelle Grierson

Lorraine Fraser

Thank you to Lorraine for appearing in our broadcast piece and supporting our song, after losing her own son to knife crime.

 

She says:

'I think it's really good what you're trying to do, and when you do good, good follows. You're doing good girls and I will back you in anything you want to do.'
