An exciting new eBook was launched at the weekend which tells the story and history of the Street Angels movement.
'Street Angels - the amazing story from binge to better' is available on Kindle and as a PDF download from www.streetangels.org.uk . The book tells the story of Halifax Street Angels, which launched in 2005, and the expansion and joining together of projects across the UK and Europe under the 'Christian Nightlife Initiatives Network' banner.
Written and compiled by Paul Blakey MBE, founder of Halifax Street Angels and CNI Network, the eBook includes stories and experiences from over thirty projects and shows how the volunteer led initiative is contributing to reduced crime and changed people and communities.
In the foreword, the Bishop of Pontefract, Right Reverend Tony Robinson, says: "Much of the news we hear about night life in our towns and cities is about unsocial behaviour and violence. So it is heartening to be able to read this story which, though not in any way diminishing the impact of harsh realities, tells of faith, hope and love."
Author Paul Blakey commented: "This book is a fascinating history of a movement which started seventeen years ago in Belfast, Northern Ireland, twelve years ago in Dundee, Scotland and almost eight years ago in Halifax, England. To read of those who have volunteered to invest in our town and cities at night, and the impact this has had, makes a challenging and inspiring read."
The eBook is priced at £5.00 and all profits will benefit the work of CNI Network.
