This week’s interview featured mum of four, Laura Hughes from In memory of Colin McGinty.
Laura was named co-winner of Merseyside Women of the Year 2019/20 and has turned the tragedy of her late brother Colin’s murder into a story of hope.
Laura leads our team of over 200 runners and raises money for knife crime prevention schemes across Merseyside and Lancashire.
I chatted to her about the impact of Colin’s murder on the family and how, along with her parents and brothers, the family have chosen to share Colin’s story to become a force for change in our communities.
Laura’s got a lot to say on knife crime and prevention so if you are a parent, her advice will be worth a listen.
