Walkfest Angel Walk 2019

Why we need your help

On Saturday 28 September 2019, a team of Angels are treading the stunning Surrey countryside by following the ancient route of pilgrims along the North Downs Way - the long distance national trail that runs from Farnham to Canterbury Cathedral. Our modern day Angels will be walking the 14 mile/ 20km stretch between Guildford and Dorking to raise much needed funds for Guildford Street Angels, as part of Guildford's annual walking festival, Walkfest.

Guildford Street Angels are better known for patrolling their cobbled High Street, bringing a calming presence to the night-time economy, which they have been doing for over a decade, without fail, every Friday and Saturday night between 10.30pm and 4am.  The award winning Street Angels have almost 100 volunteers, each year it assists some 5,000 people, providing a hospitable and practical presence in the town centre, reducing the risk of agression and crime. They seek to reassure, offer practical help and enable people to get home safely. They give flip flops for broken heals, foil blankets to protect against hypothermia, offer a listening ear, recharge mobile phones and signpost people to other services.

Guildford Walkfest is now in its 12th year and now offers a full month of walks to celebrate the beautiful borough in which we live.  The festival is run by volunteers from all the different walking groups represented in the borough, including the Surrey Hills Society, who will be supporting the Street Angels in their sponsored walk.

You are invited to "Be an Angel" by sponsoring our team, to encourage the host of Angels on their way - it costs over £80,000 a year to run our Angel projects, please donate to help keep them protecting the vulnerable on our streets, no donation is too small!
