It is fantastic to welcome Sanktuary Telford as a new local project of Street Angels - CNI Network.
You can find out more at www.sanktuary.org.uk and the aim of the work is:
Each Saturday night volunteers from across Telford come together to run a safe space for clubbers in Wellington. We offer free drinks, toast, soup, basic first aid and a listening ear from midnight to four in the morning in a warm café and on the streets we keep a watchful eye over the vulnerable, giving flip flops to girls struggling to walk in high heels, and blankets to those without coats when the temperatures drop.
Deborah Reck from Sanktuary said:
We are excited to announce that we have joined the Christian Nightlife Initiatives Network!
The CNI network is an umbrella organisation linking hundreds of local nightlife projects and providing support and resources across the whole of the UK and abroad. The network was created by the wonderful team who first started up Street Angels in Halifax in 2005. The number of projects in the network has grown and grown each year and now has links to projects around the world. This year the network received the immense honour of receving 'The Big Society Award' from David Cameron!
If you would like to find out more about the network and the other projects which we will be joining then please visit their website www.sa-cni.org.uk
We are really looking forward to getting involved in the CNI network and hope that you will all pray for us in this new step.
