Peter­bor­ough street Pas­tors

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

group of church vol­un­teers has been head­ing out into the city cen­tre un­til the early hours of Satur­day morn­ing to help those who need aid for three years.

Their aim is to pro­vide prac­ti­cal help and sup­port for those en­joy­ing a night on the town. The £300 will add to their stocks of water to help with re­hy­dra­tion, flip flops to pro­tect the feet for when the high heels have be­come too painful, and blan­kets.

Trustee Chris­tine Gra­ham said: “They are all trained first aiders so they can pro­vide help in that way.

“They also help re­unite peo­ple who have lost their friends, or help peo­ple get home.

“And as much as any­thing they are a friendly face who will chat to peo­ple. Be­cause we have been go­ing a long time peo­ple will usu­ally talk to us, and we some­times wait with them while they are wait­ing for lifts.

“We are very grate­ful for the grant – do­na­tions like these are a great help.”
