Speedy Freight has announced a partnership with the ADAM Foundation, which aims to help educate young people across Liverpool on the dangers of knives and knife crime and bring justice to its victims.

The national courier is donating £1 for every booking made by a Liverpool-based business from now until the end of the year at a minimum of £250 per month.

Three Speedy Freight vehicles have also been branded with the campaign logo to help raise awareness of the foundation, which was set up in memory of Adam Ellison, who was fatally stabbed in 2017.

According to the ONS, there were 46,265 knife-related offences in the last 12 months to the end of March this year - up 6% from last year as knife crime reaches a record high in the UK.

John Powell, general manager at Speedy Freight Liverpool said: “Local causes such as the ADAM Foundation are incredibly important to our colleagues. We’re eager to be able to support such a significant campaign to help end knife crime across UK cities and bring justice to victim’s families.

"With every Speedy Freight booking made by a Liverpool business, we’ll be pledging £1 to the foundation, #KnivesDestroyLives.”
