Rob's name lives on

Bromley is at the heart of a campaign against street violence, following the Rob Knox Charity Dinner held recently.

Organised by Rob's parents Colin and Sally Knox, the event raised £25,000, and was held in memory of their son Robert.

The 18 year old actor who played Marcus Belby in Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince, was sadly stabbed to death in Sidcup last year. A student of Bromley's D&B School of Performing Arts, Rob's death has touched the hearts of Bromley residents, and his fame has helped raise the profile of the campaign.

The Kentish Times group, with the Bromley Times, have supported the Knox's and have their own Street Violence Ruins Lives campaign.

Information on these campaigns can be found with the help of Charlton Athletic - Rob's team - on the following sites:


Colin Knox has already met with Prime Minister Gordon Brown, and has plans to meet also with Tory Leader David Cameron - I do hope this helps to raise their profile even further.
