A Street Angel is Resident of the Month

A retired management consultant who swapped the international finance sector for a local volunteering role is the Guildford Resident of the Month for September.

Alistair Pearson joined the Guildford Street Angels in 2017 and is one of over 50 people who regularly give up their time to help anyone in need while out for the night in the town centre.

Alistair said:

“We complement the work of the emergency services at a time of night when you often have thousands of revellers milling around, some of them the worse for wear due to drink or drugs, or both.

“We provide a listening ear, helping to keep people calm and making sure that they remain safe and if necessary, receive any medical care they may need.

“I joined the Street Angels because I believe it’s important that everyone plays a part in their community and I hope others will get involved, whether with the Street Angels or another local good cause.”

Organised by the Surrey Advertiser and sponsored by Guildford solicitors DMH Stallard, the Resident of the Month Award recognises unsung heroes who deserve recognition for their outstanding contribution to society. 

Samantha Jago, partner and family law expert at DMH Stallard met Alistair this week to present him with a certificate. She said:

“Alistair is a great example to us all. 
“After a successful career in management consulting that has taken him all over the world, he has put his focus on making a difference in his hometown.
“The Street Angels are there on the ground helping often younger people who can find themselves in a particularly vulnerable state after a night out.
“Alistair is clearly a wonderful servant to his community and a very deserving recipient of this award.”

As part of his award, Alistair also receives a complimentary meal for two. To nominate someone who you think deserves to be named Resident of the Month, please email enquiries@dmhstallard.com
