Our addiction services in Sunderland and South Tyneside have joined forces to celebrate and raise awareness of #NationalRecoveryMonth 2016 with a 7-mile pier-to-peer coastal walk.
Wear Recovery and Changing Lives’ South Shields projects are encouraging people in the recovery community to come along and enjoy the coastal views on their walk, which will take place on Friday 23rd September.
The organisers hope that the walk will help strengthen the community and promote the fantastic work they have been doing to help those currently suffering from substance misuse, or those with a history of substance misuse.
Walkers are set to meet at Little Haven car park in South Shields at 10am before setting off on the pier-to-peer route.
Everyone is welcome to come along and show their support.
