A joint Press Release from 24-7 Prayer Ibiza, The Living Room in Tenerife and Street Angels in Majorca is encouraging people to stay safe as they holiday in Spain this year - Angels are watching over you as you head to the beach this summer! This is a great article for local media as well so please email them!
Some exciting opportunities to serve within CNI Network projects:
Majorca Street Angels - because of the impact of the teams in Santa Ponca last year this year they will be out and about in Magaluf every Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 4am and 7am. However the Police are keen to see teams out 7 days a week especially over the peak of the season. See www.streetangels.es for information. There are also opportunities to join short and long term teams in Ibiza with 24-7 Prayer and The Living Room Tenerife.
Tour de France Grande Depart - it is hoped that teams across Yorkshire will be out and about on extra nights as the Tour de France Grand Depart visits the region and those connected with the Tour, world's media and visitors spend time enjoying Yorkshire's nightlife.
Leeds Festival Angels - this major music festival on the outskirts of Leeds over August Bank Holiday weekend attracts 90,000 people including several Festival Angels! Running the Lost Property, a Prayer Cafe as well as detached work across the site volunteers are wanted to help make this happen. See www.leedsfestivalangels.org.uk for more information.
- Peter Wilson, who initiated and heads up Bridlington Street Angels has been nominated for a High Sheriff’s Award to acknowledge “the outstanding work he has done in establishing the Bridlington Street Angels”. The award ceremony and lunch will take place at the Guildhall in Hull.
- Burton Street Angels voted best new volunteer group in East Staffordshire.
Well done to former Street Angel Georgia Harrup who got through to the quarter final of BBC's 'The Voice' - Georgia wrote the song 'Time of Need' (available free as MP3 download) for Street Angels.
Change of address - CNI Network has changed its postal address to "CNI Network, The King's Centre, Park Road, Halifax, HX1 2TS"
