Chelmsford RFC Youth section hosted a talk by The Liam Taylor Legacy - RIP Fish and presented a bleed control bag for the clubhouse

Liam Taylor, 19, was a local lad who was tragically stabbed outside a pub in Writtle in 2020.

In a change from normal Wednesday training, Liam's grandmother, Julie talked to some of the boys from the CRFC youth section about the risks of knife crime and presented the club with a bleed control bag containing a tourniquet, bandages and a foil blanket. The bag had been kindly donated by a CRFC parent who wished remain nameless.

"We don't ever want these bleed kits to be needed, but if they save a life... it'll mean the world to me," said Julie.

CRFC Chair, Gabby Rowe added "Knife crime is a growing problem in Chelmsford and it could effect any of our boys. We are incredibly grateful to Julie for giving up her time to help educate our boys on the dangers of knife crime and to the Chelmsford parent who kindly paid for the kit."

The club is now looking to raise the money to pay for an external box for the kit so that it can be accessed by emergency services when the clubhouse is closed.
