Whitby In Need Of More 'Street Angels'

Whitby In Need Of More 'Street Angels'

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 6:35am 11th August 2014.

The Street Angels in Whitby are looking for more volunteers as they reach their second anniversary.

 

They need people to join them listening to and helping vulnerable people on the streets of the town late at night.

 

In the last year, they've helped over a thousand people on Friday and Saturday evenings.

 

They've also picked up over a hundred bottles and dozens of glasses.

Graham Storer from Whitby Street Angels said: "You might actually think that we spend all our time picking up drunks from the gutter. It's not actually like that thankfully, most people are very responsible. The really big thing that we do is simply converse with people, so as we're wandering round, if somebody wants to talk to us, we'll talk to them."

 

For more information on the Whitby Street Angels, you can call Graham Storer on 01947 810776 or go to www.street-angels.org.uk
