WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY
I was absolutely delighted to have joined the Bedford Street Angels, another positive example of volunteers from local churches seeking to serve our community. I believe the project can build upon the successes which it has already achieved since its foundation in February 2009 and encourage them to keep up the good work!

Thank you Bedford Street Angels for watching over our son last night. He went out with friends to Bedford Empire got himself into a drunken state and became separated from his mates. He was found by a lady and the police then called us (we were scared to receive that call at 3am). He was then left in your kind hands until his dad came to collect him. We are devastated he got himself into such a state, and are disappointed also. I think he’s learnt his lesson because his bank card was taken and money has been taken out his account. Maybe next time he will think about this day and not to repeat it. We have brought him up with morals and how to behave and the do’s and dont’s of drinking but unfortunately he’s had to learn the hard way. What would we do without lovely caring people like the Bedford Street Angels. Our son is a lucky boy as his night out could have ended in disaster! Thanks again. X

Message from the Management
Bedford Street Angels is a fantastic organisation, whereby volunteers are able to show the love of Christ in a very practical way to people they encounter on the streets of Bedford late on a Saturday night and into the early hours of Sunday. Having patrolled with Bedford Street Angels since April 2010, I can testify to the many grateful people who have been helped by the Angels, either physically or spiritually. It is by the grace of God that Bedford Street Angels is accepted by the night time economy, being very much appreciated by the groups it works alongside, such as the police, landlords, door supervisors etc. With each volunteer's Christian understanding of life, they can bring hope and joy into sad and desperate situations, showing people that there is a God who loves them whatever their circumstances. It is a privilege and an honour to be a Street Angel, and I give God the glory for all that He has done in the past and will do in the future.Rebecca Bolt – Chair of BSA Management Committee
