When we set up Fresh as a Daisy to help women and girls in poverty the response we got was overwhelming, we now have an army of volunteers supporting Bolton women.
It is the home of the Bolton Impact Trust, this organisation is now a nationally recognised leading Alternative Provision school, that looks after some of Bolton's most disadvantaged children. The staff are some of the most dedicated people I've had the privilege to meet. They need all the help we can to continue their incredible work.
I love Bolton because of the different people you meet every day, it has such a fantastic vibe and all the places to go is amazing. Its regeneration over the years will keep Bolton on top!!!! #loveboltonforever
I have a small business on Bolton Market. The lovely community I've met here and friendliness of my customers never fails to brighten my day. I've made lifelong friends in this town
I love Bolton because of the gorgeous countryside and parks.
We can come together when needed to help each other #communityspirit #communityspiritatitsbest
We have the loveliest people who would go out of their way to help someone in need. We support each other and our community. We are a town with lots of lovely villages and you don't need to travel far to find beautiful countryside. Bolton stamped on my heart - like a stick of Blackpool rock!
It's such a diverse place. Many different shops available and everybody is always smiling and with the investment into the town itself, it's massively improving and bringing people back to the great town of Bolton. The different world sports stars we have produced and the sports clubs including our beloved Bolton Wanderers FC :)
Even though I’ve travelled the world as a teacher, & I live in Victoria, BC, now, Bolton is where my roots are & it’s always been ‘home’. My Bolton born grandfather became quite a well known opera singer, Flintoff Moore (his stage name), travelling to the USA in the 1920s to sing. I love Bolton & all my family living there today.

Our fantastic foster carers, sitters and befrienders at Bolton Shared Care... who each give a little time! But make a massive difference by supporting and enhancing the lives of children and young people with disabilities in Bolton.
It’s my home and I care about it. I run a litter picking group so I see Bolton at its best. The people of Bolton are amazing. The greenspaces in Bolton are beautiful.

I love Bolton because it has great community spirit and has some amazing people who volunteer in the community.
Bolton has an industrial heritage that we can all be proud of. In years gone by Bolton led the world in textiles and engineering. Despite the harsh reality of hardship and austerity at times, people always fought to try and make a better future for themselves, their families and communities. We can learn a lot from our history.
It's a place of contrast, the interface between conurbation and wild country, the old and the new. It's a place of change, people arriving, new development, businesses, ideas, new beers, but where constants remain, friends, values, Victorian buildings, football, X Records. It's a place of great character and a fine place to call home!
I love Bolton because of our beautiful parks and recreation spaces, our wild moors, historic houses, and magnificent Crescent and Town Hall, and how proud we are of our Lancashire roots.
It's a diverse town, full of friendly people who love a natter, a wealth of industrial heritage and beautiful buildings. A fantastic food festival, enjoyed by all who visit. Brilliant transport links. All surrounded by such beautiful countryside, right on our doorstep! What's not to Love?
I love Bolton because it's such a friendly town, even strangers will stop to say hello, good morning or alreet owdo!!
When we arrived here from Congo DRC, people of Bolton supported my family from being deported back to Congo. They did all in their power for us to remain here and made my family feel at home. This is the reason why I set up the project to give back to my community because without people of Bolton we won't be here today.
It welcomed me when I came to work here, it’s a great diverse opinionated, caring community that has a fabulous identity, and really embraces outsiders as part of the big Bolton family!
I've lived here my entire life and adore the growing variety of things to do - be it the quickly developing town centre or the relaxing countryside, there's nowhere else I'd rather have grown up. I've no plans of leaving any time soon!
