“I have lost over 2 stone now and really enjoy coming to the Bulldogs. It’s more like a community centre rather than a gym, It’s changed my life. Mal told me that it was FREE for Armed Forces Veterans to use so I joined the Not so Fit Class where I could work at my own pace. It has really helped with my knee, it’s coming on leaps and bounds. Thanks guys”.Allan Morgan - Armed Forces Veteran who came to The Bulldogs to Access our Support Services and Boxing and Fitness Pillars.
“Not only has coming to Bulldogs enabled me to get my fitness levels back up to a high standard, I have started boxing competitively for the club and I am also free from any medication for the first time in two years! I am volunteeering with the boxing and I have found employment.
I was only able to achieve what I have with the help and continued support from the Bulldogs staff, coaches and other volunteers-thanks”
“My time at Bulldogs has given me many experiences, from running the assault course, walking up mountains and planning and delivering my first class.
I have gained so much confidence and new knowledge. I have met so many lovely people from the staff to the community. I couldn’t think of a better place to spend my timeLuke - A young Volunteer who was reffered to us by one of our partner organisations and is gaining valuable work expereince at The Bulldogs.
““Bulldogs has helped me get off the streets and do something with my life otherwise I would be out fighting. Bulldogs has helped me come out with something after school – I have got my Level 1 Award in Personal Development through Physical Activities and a Level 1 Unit in Gym Based Activities and I have now started my Level 1 Fitness at College”.Donnika - A young individual who accessed our Education and Engagement Programme through a local school who went on to volunteer with us before going to College.
“As well as losing weight my epilepsy has really improved and I can now have my driving licence back. My whole life has changed just through exercising and socialising. Everyone has been so encouraging. Being here has got me where I am today. I have more energy, positivity-my mental health has significantly improved. I am feeling much more positive about life in general.”
