The road to recovery
We are so encouraged by the progress of two men who recently attended GB Job Clubs pre-release prison courses, both from HMP Guys Marsh.
Each of these men contacted us on their release, having realised that they needed help to stay outside those prison walls.
One man, a persistent offender for ten years, has enrolled at his local college – as well as learning basic numeracy skills, he’ll be training as a volunteer for next year’s Olympics. He’s really excited and so are we!
The second man, released after an eight-year prison term, has a hard road to travel.With a place at a Christian rehab centre, he’ll have a chance to leave drugs behind and rebuild his life. He’s a bright man with huge potential and even qualified as a personal trainer while in prison. So we hope and pray that his future will be brighter, once free from the claws of addiction. Huge thanks to everyone at The Message Trust in Manchester for coordinating this crucial step forward for our friend.
