WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY
I heard the tragic story of Robert this week on local media. It moved me to tears. Its extremely upsetting and difficult to understand how people could have behaved in such a way toward another human being (Robert). There is no understanding of such actions.
I wanted to write in support of you and let you know I applaud the positive action born from the event of Robert’s passing.
It is truly wonderful to hear of you helping other youngsters in the same circumstances. As a mother I realise how I worry when my own children (17 and 19) are out of an evening. They are all kids finding their way in what can be a dangerous world. The fact that you have replaced evil with love and compassion is amazing.
I would like to wish you luck and to thank you on behalf of the many parents and children you’ve assisted since 2007.
This world needs more folk like you.
The University of Bedfordshire very much appreciates the work that Bedford Street Angels do to help vulnerable people in Bedford town centre, particularly the young and the many living away from home during weekend nights and all the work they do to make Bedford a safe and welcoming town.

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
