Paul and Jean Blakey
Street Angels - CNI Network:
Paul and Jean are keen to work with localities to see Street Angel type initiatives launched. This is done through CNI Network but we are happy to chat, visit, offer resources and support to equip you to make a difference in your local night-time economy.
Paul is in demand as a speaker sharing the story of Street Angels and how local projects across the UK are making a massive difference to people's lives and the wider community. Paul is also able to speak as part of Christian services bringing God's word especially about the role of people in bringing and demonstrating as reality God's Kingdom on earth. Paul is often called dynamic and inspirational and has spoken at church services, weekend's away, luncheon clubs and to groups. Talks include:
For talks (except the workshops and meeting with local statutory bodies) a donation is requested with travel expenses at 40p a mile (Paul is based in Halifax). The workshops and meeting with statutory bodies have a fixed cost plus travel expenses. All monies received go towards the work of CNI Network. To book Paul - email / 07725501465
