In March 2013, the team received this Email from a person helped by the volunteers that night. One of those working in the Street Angels remarked: “It makes this mission all worth while”. Here is the email:
Dear Street Angels,
Thank you ever so much for looking after me on Saturday night. I was very drunk outside the Electric Lounge and one of your lovely lady volunteers made sure I stayed warm, got all my belongings back, and made it home in one piece. Anything could have happened to me otherwise. Also, sorry if I was at all rude and belligerent. I get the feeling I may have got a bit nasty at the entirely sensible suggestion that someone rang my parents. I definitely paid for my behaviour yesterday and shan’t be getting in that state again.
Thank you again,
