Ex­cerpts from let­ters to Mid­night Ex­press from those they help:

‘‘Talk­ing to Mid­night Ex­press is like talk­ing to our best friends, like we knew them for ages.’’

‘‘We can tell them any­thing like our school, what we are do­ing, about our fam­i­lies and about what hap­pened when the po­lice thought we broke into a car. They en­cour­age us to stay in school and do our work so we can get a good job.’’

‘‘It wouldn’t be the same if Mid­night Ex­press wasn’t around be­cause we wouldn’t be able to talk in the van. It wouldn’t be as safe with­out Mid­night Ex­press.’’

‘‘They are here to help us and are nice and re­spect­ful. Mid­night Ex­press used to give us hot choco­late and bis­cuits when we first met them. When we have no bus fare they help us.’’

‘‘They ed­u­cate us on drink­ing although we are mostly in­tox­i­cated when be­ing told.’’
