Guildford Street Angels - CTOG14
Graham Palmer is one of the team completing "THE LONG WALK" - Canterbury to Guildford in aid of Guildford Street Angels in September 2014.
Guildford Street Angels is a voluntary organisation that puts teams of trained personnel onto the streets of Guildford on Friday and Saturday nights to help and care for those people who find themselves in distress or danger. As a university town, Guildford has a diverse and multi-cultural community with a large proportion being aged under-25. This number is also swelled by the young men and women attending nearby military training establishments. So as you might imagine, a lot of the people we help as Street Angels are young people enjoying a night out in the local pubs, clubs and bars and who, for a variety of reasons, become vulnerable. Street Angels are often able to assist and care for these people who would otherwise come to the attention of the Police or other agencies. For this reason, we work closely with Surrey Police, Guildford Town Council and other organisations within the local community.
The aim of our walk, branded ‘CTOG 14’ (Canterbury to Guildford 2014), was to raise a minimum of £7,500. These funds will be used for the purchase of uniforms and equipment (eg. personnel radios) and for training new recruits to the Street Angels Team.
