A HUNTINGDON building society is helping the victims of crime to feel safer, both at home and out in the street, after donating 100 personal alarms to Victim Support.

Norwich and Peterborough Building Society (N&P) customer adviser Nadine Hunter contacted Dave Wilson, manager of the Cambridgeshire branch of Victim Support, which is based at the Maple Centre in Huntingdon, to see if she could help with a donation.

Mr Wilson suggested a donation of personal alarms and N&P came up trumps.

"We are very grateful to N&P for this kind donation," he said. "The key rings will help so many local people who have previously been a victim of crime. I would like to thank staff at N&P on behalf of everyone who will benefit from these alarms."

Victim Support helps people cope with crimes by offering them trained volunteers to talk to, support and information. They also help people through court appearances should they have to appear as a witness.

And, if a victim is worried for their safety for any reason, they can also get a key ring-sized personal alarm, which can be easily kept in a pocket or handbag.

Miss Hunter added: "I am pleased that we have been able to help. As a mutual building society, N&P looks to support its local community whenever it can. I hope that the alarms help more people to continue on in community life without having to feel afraid.
