British girl group Girls Aloud are adding their vocals to a new single to support an anti-knives campaign.

The project – which also features members of the British football and rugby squads – aims to raise money for a number of knife crime charities, and was initiated by British actor Stephen Nicholas, who wanted to raise awareness about knife crime and its consequences after a number of young people were stabbed to death across the country.

“We just want to raise awareness,” he said. “We haven’t got any ulterior motive, our only motive is to stop kids dying. We all live in different parts of the country and kids are dying in all of those areas, not just in London. Every single community around the country is having the same problems with knife crime.”

The collaboration – called U.K. Flow – also features Casualty actors Luke Bailey and Elyes Gabel, former Hollyoaks star Lee Otway, DJ and presenter Marvyn Williams, and singer Steve Edwards. The group is expected to perform the song at the Love Music Hate Racism concert in Rotherham next month.
