The voices of our charity bring our work to life. From local volunteers to 71-year old marathon runners,Â stories are the fabric of Crimestoppers.Â Weâ€™ve picked out some of the most interesting blogs from the past year, highlightingÂ the people and stories thatÂ make Crimestoppers so unique:
Chuck is travelling all the way from Canada to run the marathon for us
Every year we cheer 30-40 people through the London Marathon. This year we cheered on someone quite different: 71-year old Charles â€˜Chuckâ€™ Chamberlain. Chuck had never run a day in his life before he ran the Marathon for Crimestoppers. Read what motivated ChuckÂ to lace up his running shoes.
Volunteersâ€™ Week is always a cause for celebration at Crimestoppers.Â Weâ€™ve got 670 volunteers across the country that do everything from supporting local campaigns to talkingÂ to students about important issues likeÂ personal safety and cybercrime. Find out the powerful reason why Monica volunteers for Crimestoppers.
In a blog for International Womenâ€™s Day (March), Karen (Head of Performance)Â talks aboutÂ important life lessons. Find out whyÂ Karen loves working for Crimestoppers.
Student Ashleigh had been looking forward to her sixth form work experience with us since she was a young teenager. Find out why Ashleigh has an interest in crime reduction, and what she thinks about youth and crime.
Crimestoppers is a charityÂ embedded in communities.Â Itâ€™s important to reach out to those communitiesÂ to hear what they have to say about crime and social issues. By inviting individuals and community groups to the conversationÂ we can all work together to identify and tackle the root causes of crime. Read the thoughts and stories of people who attend our London Drop the Knife event.
