It's really lovely when you get some encouraging message back from people you have helped. We don't do it for the praise but it is encouraging and spurs you on to keep doing what you are doing:

These are messages from a few people we have helped this summer:

"We had a messy few weeks last year and one night my friend had a few too many and fell and smashed his head open. While I was calling the ambulence my bag was robbed and it was a horrible night!! You took care of my friend who fell and gave him water and bandages and brought him home safe, thank you so much you also gave him a 24-7 lighter which he treasured! I have seen you care for others throughout the duration of my stay too, wow you do an amazing job keep it up xxxx"

"Hello 24-7! I’d like to thank all at 24-7, particularly a group of individuals who helped me out on the west end .I was massivly intoxicated as it was my holiday i thought hey! lets go nuts, unfortunatly before I knew it i was on the ground bleeding heavily from the hand. Members from 247 literally picked me up, strapped me up and walked my back to my hotel – Dread to think where i would be without them as i lost my friends that night! You only really appreciate what these people do when you need them most! Keep it up. Thanks again! x"

"Hi 24-7 Ibiza.  On the 30 June 2011 I got far to carried away on my first night out in Ibiza and got to a stage of drunkenness I never been before and don’t fancy again. This is what I remember, I wandered out of a club and from my mates and then was lying in a street being sick and falling asleep then two amazing people came from nowhere and started helping me say there hear to help next thing I’m in a car then wake up on my bathroom floor. I then found a message from Gillian & Neil letting me no they helped me home. Thank you so so much for what you done that night hate to think what could of happend. I would love to no what I was like that night and how you found were I was staying as I didt have a clue at the time. Thank for all you done and keep up the good work:)"

These messages give us courage to keep going.
