HALIFAX Street Angels were among community groups invited to a reception at the Houses of Parliament.

MP Stephen Timms, vice chairman of the Labour Faith Group, hosted the visit for organisations linked to the Christian Nightlife Initiatives Network.

All work to support vulnerable people in society. Paul Blakey, the founder of Street Angels in Halifax and the CNI Network, was among the speakers.

He said: “This was a fantastic day to celebrate all that is achieved in our communities through people who care.

“To be hosted in the Houses of Parliament was an honour and a real boost to those who walk the streets of towns and cities, offering support to the vulnerable.”

The Halifax party travelled to and from London from Brighouse with rail company Grand Central, which supports charities through a community card giving savings of up to 50 per cent on train journeys.
