#LetMeTellYouAboutRonan -the story of Ronan through his sister Nikita.

Ronan was 16 when he was stabbed, seconds from home, by teenagers who thought he was someone else.

He suffered devastating injuries and died on the street where he lived.

Ronan lost his life and his teenage killers were jailed for life for his murder.

Ronan’s family are bravely helping us to raise awareness of the dangers of carrying a knife. They firmly believe if someone had reported the boys who stabbed Ronan, he would still be alive today.
