Street AngelsWoking Street Angels – the 30-hr shift!

Firstly, thank you all for your going prayer support to Woking Street Angels (WSA). It is a real comfort and blessing when out on a shift to know that people are praying for us.

This coming weekend, Woking Street Angels will be running a 30-hour shift, beginning at 9:30pm on Friday 17th of May and ending at the 4:00am Sunday 19th! (I will be on duty Saturday afternoon.). There will also be an information stall in the town centre.

WSA volunteers are undertaking this mammoth task in order to raise awareness in Woking of the, often unseen, work that they do in the town and for the community, as well as much needed funds. In the last year, they have given out 33 blankets, cleared up 2,965 bottles and helped 706 people. They have also sat and listened to 90 people with open hearts and open minds and helped 63 people home safely. These statistics reflect the hard work of all the dedicated volunteers who generously give up their time to make the streets of Woking a safer place.

There are countless unseen moments of the Street Angels going above and beyond to ensure those who need it are kept safe. This can include anything from providing a hot cup of coffee, a listening ear, sitting with someone until they are sober enough to take a taxi home, helping to locate a lost friend or personal items, waiting with someone for an ambulance to arrive.

If you would like to contribute financially to this event, you can do so via this link https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/streetangels30hrshift or speak to Eric or Linda. However, the most powerful support are your prayers, so thank you again.
