Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
For my birthday I would be enormously grateful for donations to
Swanswell West Berkshire
Drugs are fast becoming a huge problem for West Berkshire's teenagers. Please read the information below and donate as much as you can.
Youngsters from midsized towns are being sucked into drug dealing through county lines drug schemes. County lines involves gangs from cities violently taking over the drugs trade in smaller towns and using vulnerable people to sell drugs. It involves human trafficking, child exploitation and grooming.
Dealers recruit middle class school-age kids as drug runners, profiting financially by exploiting local juveniles and supplying them for mid-market drug deals. They use people under 18 to avoid getting a criminal record. Teenagers believe they won't get caught and are promised the life of a wealthy gangster which seems appealing to them when they are unsure of their future plans and want to get rich quick.
Criminals involved are ruthless and often commit other serious offences against drug-users, rival dealers or innocent members of the public with knives and other weapons. There has already been activity of this kind at Combe Gibbet, local skateparks, rural areas and play areas in Hungerford, Newbury and Kintbury.
Thank you so much for helping to keep the future for West Berkshire's young people safe for the future .
