Sammi-Jo Ward I am doing a 10,000 ft skydive to raise funds for a local charity who have been helping families in the community since 2000. I have chosen to support them because I know first hand how much destruction an addiction can have on an individual and their family members. Everyone deserves the chance to change their future and know that there is always hope. My mother in law has invested a lot of time and effort since she started volunteering 8 years ago and now works for the charity. It would mean so much to me.
The Living Room Hertfordshire is an award winning addiction recovery charity. They have Centres in Stevenage, St Albans and Watford. Each are staffed by highly-trained counsellors offering free day-time treatment, Group counselling, peer support and workshop therapies. For addictions such as Substance abuse, eating disorders, OCD, self-harm, gambling etc.

£2595 - is how much it costs to successfully treat a service user

10 months - The average stay in treatment for adults who then go on to stay in long term recovery
