Farewell to the Angel
More than 125,000 people have visited the Knife Angel sculpture in October whilst it has been displayed at Bondholder Derby Cathedral.
Rachel Morris, Diocesan Secretary and Cathedral Chapter Steward says: “We have been delighted with the success of the Knife Angel in achieving our goal to raise public awareness through engagement and education."
Helen Wathall, managing director of Bondholder Wathall's funeral directors said: “I am proud that Wathall’s has been part of the county-wide effort to bring the sculpture to Derby. The Knife Angel is incredibly poignant and is already encouraging people to talk about knife crime which is an important step forward if we are going to tackle this as a society.”
