Leyfield’s vicar Vic Van Den Bergh is behind the Tamworth scheme. He said: “Tamworth Street Angels have been working on the streets of Tamworth for six months helping people in a variety of ways and now it’s time for them to step up a gear as summer and the World Cup draw ever nearer.
“Over the past six months they have been joined by various observers to see what really happens, one of them being former mayor Lee Bates. All have been most impressed by the commitment and energy of the teams. There is an opportunity for those who think they might like to be a Street Angel to come out with them to see first hand what it takes to be part of the team.
“Those who decide to join will find themselves receiving first aid and other training that will not only help them to support the people of Tamworth but will make them that little bit more confident when faced with challenges and decisions.
“Joining is free and the benefits from meeting the people on a Friday night are immeasurable.”
Why not be an angel and consider joining them? A recruitment evening for anyone wishing to join the Street Angels is being held tonight (Thursday June 12) at 7.30pm at St Francis Church in Masefield Drive, Leyfields.
