Last Friday eleven volunteers set out on the streets of Windsor at about 2230 hrs with a view to assist people in the town.
The Street Angels patrolled in groups of three and spoke to many young people attending the public houses and the six night clubs in the town. Hot soup was provided for rough sleepers and homeless during the course of the night. Street Angels dealt with incidents involving dangerous structures encountered, dangerous litter tidied up, minor accidents assisted with and questions answered. Lollipops were dispensed and flip flops handed out as required.
A 33yr old drunk male who had lost his wallet and had a mobile phone with a flat battery was found sleeping wearing jeans and a shirt in a phone box in a temperature of minus six degrees centigrade. The man was brought back to the Angels HQ and provided with a hot drink and somewhere to sober up. It was agreed by all that a catastrophic outcome was averted by the intervention of the Angels.
All the Angels agreed that the evening was a success and an enjoyable event.
