Windsor Street Angels Christmas Raffle
- December 2017
This Christmas we’re holding our first ever Windsor Street Angel’s Christmas Raffle with all the money raised going directly to support the Street Angels.
The raffle has been organised by Angel Katie Jones who has worked with many of the local businesses, bars and clubs to arrange the generous prizes. There’s something for everyone with prizes ranging from complimentary club entry and drinks to a boat trip down the river.
Tickets are £1 each and can be bought direct from Katie or via the MyDonate Raffle page – when buying online please include your contact details in your donation message so we can contact you with your prize. If you would rather buy direct then drop us an email and we’ll pass your contact details over to Katie.
The raffle will be drawn on the 14th December so there will be plenty of time to make sure you get the prize wrapped up and under the tree in time for Christmas!
A huge thankyou to Katie for her energy and enthusiasm at arranging the raffle and a massive thanks to all the generous donors of prizes.
Training for the team on Hate Crime, Vulnerability and Drugs Awareness
The team had a great training session covering drugs awareness, vulnerability and hate crime.
All three items are issues that our Street Angels observe whilst on shift and training like this is critical to ensure they are comfortable recognising it and knowing how best to support those impacted.
All our Street Angels receive free training covering these areas and many more topics such as first aid, homelessness and radio skills.
The first Community Access Defibrillator in Windsor has been installed on William Street and is sponsored by the Windsor Street Angels!
A defibrillator is an essential piece of life saving equipment and our Street Angels actually carry one with them during shift as these really can make the difference in survival if someone suffers a cardiac arrest.
Providing community access defibrillators means that this kit is available to anyone that needs it and William Street is a busy location close to the high street and clubs.
The defibrillator has been provided as part of the Windsor Community Defibrillator Project which is working to ensure there are accessible community defibrillators across Windsor.
