Just want to say a huge thank you to all the lads at Be Strong.

You provide a great service and good value for money to the people of Bolton and in turn you help and give others the opportunity to return back to the community in a safe and organized manner.

Well done !!

Hi and Good Afternoon,

I came across your shop Saturday morning as we had a mooch around Bolton, my home town that I left 30 years ago.

It just so happened that we needed a new Tumble dryer ( good old British weather ) so we wandered in after looking in the window.

Today I’ve received delivery of a tumble dryer, from the moment we walked into the shop we couldn’t have been dealt with any better, the lads were helpful and polite, nothing was too much trouble.

It was only when I got chatting to one of them whilst my husband was sorting out measurements etc that I was told about your project and all the work that you do!

Bravo Darren you are a gentleman, I will be strongly recommending your services to anyone in need of a new appliance.

Thank you to the lads who delivered this afternoon and keep up the good work !!

Absolute pleasure dealing with this charity and could not be more pleased with the lads who delivered my item.

They were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble and they truly went out of their way.

Every credit to the Be Strong charity and I can highly recommend the work that the lads do. Darren couldn’t have been more helpful….and in today’s society it is a rarity to find such an organisation.

Keep up the good work lads!!!!!!

Please pass on my sincere thanks to the lads that brought my dryer up yesterday. They are a credit to your organisation. Couldn’t be more impressed…

Kind regards.

I would like to say a massive thank you to you all and Darren. You’re doing a great job! All the lads I meet are polite and couldn’t do enough for you.

Gill was wonderful. It was a pleasure to have met and would certainly recommend you to friends.

I’m a parent of one of the lads on the Be Strong project. After a few months on the programme, I am totally amazed by the change in my son. I feel that Darren has not only thrown my son a new life line but he has saved ME and my family.

I just wish we had known about Be Strong sooner! BUT! it’s happening now and I hope the project continues for many years as it’s not just the individual that suffers it’s the families that it hits hard too. You are saving a lot of people by what you do.

Keep up the good work. I can’explain how grateful I feel! A GREAT BIG THANKYOU Darren.

My son has been on this project for a couple of weeks now and I can’t thank Darren enough. I’ve seen a change in my son that is for the best and I knew deep down he was a good lad I just needed someone to believe in him and bring out his good side and Darren has done just that. I can’t thank you enough Darren.

I have been on this project for a few weeks now and do feel it is helping me a lot.

In my past i have been quite lazy and found it hard to get motivated and after having children stopped careing about myself as long as i would do all i could for them. but during my time on the project i feel it has tought me that if im not happy with me i cant keep my kids happy and be the best dad i can it has got me doing lots more in my life than i thought i would and start aiming for some goals in my life instead of just sitting bak and waste my life. this project is doing great things and i hope it is able to carry on helping more people
