Angels hit the streets in Windsor for the first time on Friday to help vulnerable party-goers - and believe they saved a reveller's life.
Street Angels patrolled the town in their high visibility jackets giving out lollipops and blankets, helping people in need or those wanting just a shoulder to cry on outside nightspots.
Teresa Horder, of Longmead, said groups helped a soldier who wanted to talk about his painful experiences in Afghanistan, while a man was found asleep and drunk in a phone box.
Teresa, 52, said: "I believe we saved the 25-year-old's life as it was minus 10, he had no wallet and his mobile phone was not working.
"He said he was in London with a group of people, but decided to go to Portsmouth and the next thing he was woken up by the angels."
Teresa said he was taken to their base at the Baptist Church in Victoria Street.
The Street Angels initiative is led by Windsor Churches Together, in conjunction with police and the Royal Borough.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
