Let’s join together to help with Darren’s rehab

Darren suffered a severe stroke at home on friday 10th July 2020. He is currently at salford royal hospital but he has a long and difficult road ahead of him. His fiancee, Kimberley has been forced to take time off work in order to care for Alice, their 18 month old daughter.

Darren has been a prevalent figure in Leigh town for many years. He was the DJ in The Leigh Arms back in the good old days and he then went on to manage Bar-Bliss bringing Live Music and entertainment to the town. He hosted some really big names and Bar-Bliss became the place to be. After that he moved across the road and opened Sound Bar which was equally as successful.

For the past few years he has been the GM and Host at The Courtyard Bistro in Lowton and in January 2018 he had his second daughter, Alice and him and Kim became engaged at Christmas.

He suffered a less severe stroke in September 2019 and unfortunately hasn’t been able to return to work since then. They had a family holiday booked this year which was sadly cancelled due to Covid.

Darren is a massive figure in the town and now more than ever him and Kim need all of our help. As a family they both have a long road ahead so if we can all pull together to relive any financial stresses then that would make a world of difference.

There have been so many kind messages and well wishes and offers of support so let’s all pull together and help out as best as we can.

Thank you
