My story

North Wales Recovery Communities Is a charity supporting people in recovery from substance misuse. As someone in recovery myself, it is very close to my heart. It provided a home when I came knocking, and employment when I was ready. It is one of kind!

In 2022 we acquired new premises. Hillgrove school will be undergoing refurbishment throughout 2023. When phase 1 is completed, it will comprise of an 18 bedroom house, plus a variety of communal living and dining areas ready for the transition of our current model at Penrhyn House.

Hillgrove has a huge amount of potential. The many classrooms and ancillary buildings are also earmarked for future development, one of them being the old junior block which we plan to transform into a new 'Wellbeing Suite' which will play host to a new gym, yoga/mindfulness room and counselling room. It goes without saying that improvement of mental, physical, and spiritual health greatly reduces the chance of relapse in recovery.

For this to happen, we need your support, and plenty of it! We are setting the bar at £70,000 and I know that with your help, we can do it.

**As part of our 'Run 2 Recover' project, I will be kicking off the fundraising by entering the Offa's Dyke 24 hours south challenge on 13th May 2023. This is a race against the clock that sees competitors set off at midday on the Saturday and head south, through the night along the Offa's Dyke. Time is up at midday on Sunday. Objective - get as far as possible in 24 hours!!

The current record is 89 miles.

Running, and more recently Ultra Running has played a major part in my recovery from alcohol addiction and I have been fortunate to enter some fantastic events. However, this is a whole new ball game and something I am not taking lightly. it will involve a huge amount of training and preparation. I will be supported by My family and the guys from North Wales Recovery Communities will be there at checkpoints along the way to offer moral banter !!

Your support will make a difference to peoples lives, make no bones about it. It will bring hope to people who, let's face it, at times didn't have much. It will integrate recovery into the community and help lower the stigma associated with addiction.

In addition to the individual benefit, every £1 spent on recovery saves society approximately £7 by way of a reduction in areas such as healthcare, crime and employment.

I am a firm believer in accountability, so your sponsorship will encourage me to go the extra mile in support of this vital cause for an organisation that quite literally saved my sanity.

You can find more about our fundraising efforts and a bit more about why we're doing this at www.run-2-recover.com.

Thank you for your kind support,

Rich.
