Who are the London Knightz
Ruben was a passionate inline hockey player for the London Knightz, a London and Kent-based inline skater club for everyone over the age of four.
In 2019, London Knightz partnered with Allergy UK to support our work to improve the lives of the millions of people who are affected by allergic disease. Even more particular is their support for our mission that no one should die of Allergy. Since Ruben’s passing, his hockey team at London Knightz has continued to honour his memory in various ways including organising walks and tournaments to keep his memory alive. In line with this, they have raised thousands of pounds for Allergy UK in Ruben’s memory.
In October 2019, the same year that Ruben passed, Allergy UK launched an interactive Allergy House. The home of an atopic family, the Knights, was named after the London Knightz. The Allergy House provides an interactive walk-through experience to explore the home of an atopic family and continues to be a popular online Allergy UK resource. The walk-through experience provides useful information on how to manage allergy hotspots in the home and signposts useful services and resources provided by Allergy UK.
