Hi All,

Big thanks and congrats to Rich & George who successfully completed the Somerset 100 (mile) bike race last Sunday. Both felt somewhat tired yesterday but with nearly £800 raised for the charity they should be very proud of their achievement.

Plus, we have been informed that Rich came 3rd in the Veterans category! Well done Rich!

Here’s a pic pre race of George and Rich

Thank you as always to all who sponsored and supported

Recent School Talk at Robert Blake School in Bridgwater

Hi All,

We just wanted to update you on another successful educational interactive workshop we did recently at the Robert Blake School to Year 11 students. Our volunteers did an outstanding job sharing their real life experiences of what life was like in addiction and the consequences this has had on their lives and those around them.

Some of the feedback we received is highlighted below:

“They realised not to get involved with drugs, not to be manipulated and to share their emotions before they become dangerous.”

 “Really well planned and delivered for our year 11 group –  very brave presentation – thank you!”

 “The personal experiences were good – liked how open/blunt they were about everything.”

 “Hard hitting, unexpected, emotional, empathetic.”

“It has made us feel even more determined to not touch drugs at all.”
“I felt a huge amount of respect for the presenters, thankful for their time, honesty and bravery and an instant connection.”

A big thank you for all those who support the charity and this is one of the many ways fundraising is put into action, trying to help young people to make better more informed choices.
