Our teams were out and about on extra patrols for World Cup matches (some of the nights spent inside pubs watching the match [Oldham]!), in Windsor around Ascot, around Wimbledon tennis through 'Love All Serve All' and at the Commonwealth Games torch relay in Dundee. Teams in Yorkshire will be offering extra patrols around the Tour de France events the first weekend in July. Thanks to all those who volunteer to ensure others and communities stay safer - you are amazing!
Paul met with the National Community Life Coordinator of Asda supermarkets who are keen to support the work of local projects and other community groups - see here for more details.
Thanks to those individuals and projects who have responded to our financial needs. We've been so successful we now need to raise our game on the finance side to press forward for the next phase of our growth. If everyone on our emailing list and social media signed up to give £2 a month it would cover all our current monthly expenditure - please see this page to sign up. Alcohol related crime and A&E admissions are reducing year on year - evidence that the work of CNI Network and our local projects work and has significant, measurable, international impact.
