Seven weeks ago today, 17 year-old Jay Whiston died after being stabbed at a house party in Colchester.
Today his family and friends launched a fundraising shop in the town. It aims to highlight awareness about the dangers of carrying weapons- and get the issue put onto the school curriculum.
Educating children from an early age is at the heart of this weapons awareness shop in Colchester, set up in memory of 17 year-old Jay Whiston. The teenager from Clacton was stabbed at a house party in Colchester on September 8th .
Jay had a Cookie monster tattoo, so this image is being used on all the fundraising merchandise, which will help his family to set up a charity. They need to raise £5,000 to do it.
