Lee Bowyer's Marathon run for Addaction


My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/LeeB


I am running the Paris Marathon in April 2015 to raise money for Addaction, a charity who help those who suffer from Alcohol and Drug problems.

Thanks for your help,


About Addaction:
"We have over 100 centres around the UK. Annually we help close to 50,000 people. We help individuals clinically, but also through psycho-social treatment programmes so they are able to recover from their addictions and return to, or live in their communities successfully. Recovery from addiction requires a package of treatment where the physical addiction is treated, but also the causes of it in the first place. We are an evidence based organisation and this is by far the most successful and in the long run, cheapest way to help people with alcohol or drugs problems. 

We help with education programmes for people wanting to return to work and we also work with whole families. If one or both of the parents struggle with addiction we work to help their family dynamic, making sure the children are afforded a more ordered life, taken to school etc.

We also work in partnership with the Amy Winehouse Foundation to delivery alcohol and drug education in schools. This is called the resilience programme and aims to help children and young people better understand the consequences of their decisions"
