Aylesbury's Street Angels, part of a growing national network, provide voluntary Christian support to help to make our town safe and enjoyable late at night and early morning. They work in partnership with the police, door staff, taxis and town centre management. The latest annual report tells their story in numbers:
71 nights worked in the last year. 59 instances of first aid. 58 times practical help given to the homeless. 21 times providing a calming influence. 64 people helped home safely. 330 glasses and bottles disposed of. 179 pairs of flip-flops given out. 46 space blankets and 87 bottles of water given away. To all the Street Angel volunteers who give their time to people of all faiths and none, we say a big THANK YOU!
