Le #Tour De #Recovery sets off from Leamington as part of #Recovery Week
Le Tour De Recovery (TDR) is a fund raising bike ride from Leamington Spa to arrive in Durham Town on 12.09.2015 – a total of 280 miles. The peloton is compiled of staff from drug and alcohol services in Warwickshire and Coventry, volunteers and Recovery Champions. Durham is the venue for the 2015 Recovery Walk, to raise awareness of the importance of communities in the building of effective and visible responses to sustaining recovery from substance misuse and the continued need to keep harm reduction at the top of the recovery agenda.
TDR set out from the Recovery Partnership (TRP) at Court Street Leamington at 9.10pm, with a rousing send off from Addaction staff, Donna Hussain (Warwickshire Community Safety and Substance Misuse Team), Jon Murray (Addaction), ESHWorks, well-wishers and a photographer from Beyond Recovery. The riders arrived at TRP Coventry at 10am where they were greeted by TRP staff, Swanswell staff, well-wishers and families and friends.
Warwickshire County Council Community Safety and Substance Misuse Team are one of the sponsors of the event and we will be keeping you posted on the pelotons progress, trials and tribulations and we wish them a happy, safe and comfortable journey!
