A comment on Twitter - someone talking about Street Angels - said,
'nobody's ever been that nice to me'
As volunteers invest into people and communities across the UK, Europe and Australia we are bringing hope, love, joy, niceness, peace and purpose to so many. The work we do counts! Feedback on social media every weeks shows the value others place on the help offered to them by a Street Angel, Town Pastor, Street Chaplain, NightLight volunteers. Thanks to all those who volunteer to make the difference in the lives of others...
