Darryl’s Reading Half Marathon

Darryl MarathonSee that guy? That’s Darryl.

You have seen him before – he was part of our customer service Christmas jumpers day and also took part in Movember 2012!

For this year he’s set himself a new goal and will take part in the Reading half marathon on the 2nd of March in order to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

When he doesn’t wear funny jumpers he strives to make each and everyone of our customers happy, supports Southampton Football Club [we try not to hold that against him too much!] and makes the occasional cup of tea.

If you like to donate to Cancer Research UK and show support to Darryl you can donate on JustGiving now. 

We wish him good luck for his half marathon!

The Addiction Recovery Agency courtyard project

Flowerpot man KeithThe Addiction Recovery Agency (ARA) is a voluntary organisation set up to treat addictions to drugs and alcohol in Bristol.

Recovering from an addiction requires making huge changes to all areas of ones life; behaviours, relationships, families and social networks in order to develop a quality of life.

Addiction strips away the joy and spontaneity from life – simple things can bring that experience back again! Flowers, getting hands dirty, watching things grow and thrive is a wonderful opportunity to express the change outside which has to take place on the inside.

Jo and plants doing 'Feelings'So staff and clients got together to brighten up the shared courtyard around which all the therapeutic work goes on.

The art group got stuck in making posters, laminated wall hangings and designs of ideas.

Primrose donated the planters that ARA chose for one of the darkest areas and Keda, Katrina (counsellors), Corrado (student counsellor) planted them up and Michael, Gary, Lisa, Dante. Ray, David, Stuart, Shelley, Keith posed and smiled and encouraged the counsellors to do some real work for a change!
