Ghosts, ghouls, skeletons and zombies will be joined by Angels on the streets of towns and cities across the UK this Halloween.
The weekend around Halloween has become one of the busiest nights of the year with people donning fancy dress costumes and pubs and clubs holding specially themed nights. The weekend before the 31st October will see teams of Street Angels and Club Angels out and about helping those who are or could become vulnerable.
Founder of Street Angels and CEO of CNI (Christian Nightlife Initiatives) Network, Paul Blakey MBE, comments, "The Saturday before Halloween is becoming the most popular night of the year for people to go out to pubs and club with people dressing up in wide range of freaky costumes. Our teams are on hand to help people have a safer Halloween night out, though often the problem is spotting the real blood from the fake blood!"
Street Angels were launched in 2005 and have since being replicated in over one hundred and thirty communities across the UK and overseas. Volunteer teams patrol night-time communities and offer safe place drop-in's alongside flip-flops, first aid, reassurance and lollipops to late night revellers.
