The Co-op is teaming up with anti-knife crime organisation Steel Warriors to build 20 open-air gyms across the UK.
The gyms will be made using steel from knives that have been taken off the street, melted down and recycled. The free-to-use gyms, two of which will be built this year, will include gym instructors who will provide training sessions for different abilities.
Local training instructors and sports groups will be invited to use the gyms for free and the Co-op will connect them with local youth groups. The gyms follow the Co-op’s move to stop selling single-pack knives in its stores.
