Stockton Town Pastors launched a new mobile support unit on Maundy Thursday, 17th April, on Stockton High Street. The Mayor of Stockton, Councillor Barbara Inman gave her support to the project and officially launched the vehicle. Project Manager Steve Brock talked about the history and reason for the vehicle and that it would give an extra dynamic to the work in Stockton on weekend evenings. Chair of STP Trustees Rev. Derek Rosamond thanked those who had helped with getting the vehicle ready and then prayed for the project, the vehicle and those it will help. People were then invited to see the vehicle ahead of its first night on the town at night on Saturday. Alongside the volunteers others who attended the launch included the Police, local authority, benefactors, churches, CNI Network and Hartlepool Town Pastors.
