Feet on the Street
Manchester Street Angels went undercover to see exactly what sort of situations we’ll be dealing with when we launch our night-time patrols.
The Steering Group for Manchester Street Angels has now been formed and decisions are now being made as to when and where we will be up and running.
We then launched our ‘Feet on the Street’ event on Friday 25th April, led by Councillor Pat Karney

Freshers Week 2015
We were asked by GMP to add extra shifts to help the new students receive a warm, friendly welcome and ensure they have a safe Freshers Week.
We have to say the new students were polite & sensible, leaving the clubs early to catch their bus home because they had a class in the morning! (Dedicated students, wonder if they chnage during their course)
Thanks to the Angels that were able to commit & be part of the Freshers Team working Friday, Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday.. we were shattered!

We know the Chief can make a brew!
Great Manchester Run 10K in memory of Anne.
On February 1st, we received unexpected bad news. We had lost our angel Anne due to a tragic accident whilst on a skiing holiday with her sons. In may, friends from Bramhall Methodist Church ran in memory of Anne.
