“My whole recovery is around the Health and Wellbeing service. I train here every day and I do the fun runs, football training and swimming too. I’d be lost without it all. It all happened through this gym. Sometimes, you think there is no hope but there is hope but it takes just one person to believe in you for things to go right.”
