Running into Recovery
“On the 30th January 2016 I gave up a psychoactive drug, so called legal high, which had been a part of my life for a long time. I became unwell because of them and now, I am glad to say, that I am still in recovery and enjoying life to the full”
Jon has been supported by Justlife since February and we have seen a huge change in Jon over that time. Recently Jon has taken up running as to keep active and has begun to raise money for various charities including Justlife. So far Jon has raised an amazing £415! Because of his great efforts and determination to turn his life around and raise money for charities he cares about, Jon has been nominated for a Just Giving award!
Jon goes onto say “I am raising money for Justlife, which is a charity very close to my heart. Justlife has been a great support to me ever since they visited me when I came out of hospital. They provided me with a wide range of much needed support, which is an amazing service in the local community”
We are immensely proud of what Jon has achieved and we hope that others can be inspired by Jon’s story. It just goes to show that with the right support and determination to succeed, anything is possible!
