A man who received support from a substance misuse charity in Plungington is now giving back by setting up a 25k fundraising walk.

Clients and staff from Tribal Project will set off on the Lake District Ultra 25k Challenge on 8 June, arranged by Sean Randall.

Sean received support from the charity for a number of years before getting sober, volunteering for Tribal Project and now working for them as a substance misuse recovery coach.

He said: “Me, Byron and Rikkie are doing this 25k walk for Tribal Project as it is a charity very close to our hearts. 

“As a lot of you will know I’ve had long-standing struggles with alcohol and tried hundreds of times to stop but could not. 

“Tribal Project is the only place where I’ve got sober and stayed sober which has been nearly 4 years now. 

“I now work for Tribal Project and I would deeply appreciate any support you can give to this small independent charity.”

Sean’s Just Giving page has already hit over £1,150 of their £1,500 target – already having to increase their fundraising goal. 

Ian Edmondson, the director said: “We are incredibly proud of Sean’s achievements and are lucky to have him as part of the team.”

The fundraising event comes as the charity celebrates its 10th anniversary which was in April.

Tribal Project, based at Plungington Community Centre, is an independent substance misuse and associated mental health charity, helping people recover, develop, learn new skills and re-integrate into society.
