ReNew, the Change Grow Live service in Hull, is looking forward to the UK National Recovery Walk coming to the city and urges you to get involved!
The UK Recovery Walk is a national event of great significance, gathering individuals, families, and communities to raise awareness about addiction recovery.
It is a day of unity, hope, and compassion, aiming to reduce the stigma surrounding addiction and highlighting the incredible transformations that can be achieved through recovery.
All are invited to take part in the walk, regardless of personal experiences with addiction. Whether you have directly faced the challenges of recovery or not, your presence and support will be invaluable. The event is an opportunity for us to come together as a society, supporting those who have overcome addiction while fostering an understanding and accepting environment for those still on their journey to recovery.
This year’s UK Recovery Walk is particularly special, as it is not only the first time the event will grace the streets of Hull, but it may also be the last. Previously held in cities like Newcastle and Blackpool, this powerful gathering has left an indelible mark, drawing thousands of participants. Now, Hull has the chance to create its own legacy of unity and hope.
The organisers are aiming high, hoping to welcome over 1,000 attendees from Hull and beyond to this extraordinary occasion. By uniting in such numbers, we can showcase our collective support and demonstrate our commitment to the recovery community.
Following the walk, the festivities will continue at the Recovery Village event. Taking place at Zebedee’s Yard, the village promises to be a vibrant hub of art, culture, and wellbeing. Attendees will have the chance to indulge in live music performances on a dedicated stage, admire thought-provoking art exhibitions, and explore various health and wellbeing stalls.
The Recovery Village presents a golden opportunity to engage with local support services, discover valuable resources for recovery, and connect with a community that wholeheartedly believes in the power of healing and transformation. ‘We are really excited to bring the UK Recovery Walk to Hull,’ said Matthew Butler, host of the Believe in People podcast, a series that highlights stories of recovery over addiction.
‘This is an occasion of hope and celebration, where we stand together, showing that recovery is not only possible but worthy of recognition and support. The incredible backing from the public and the local community in the voting process to have the Recovery Walk here in Hull means the world to us, and we are eagerly anticipating the positive impact an event like this can have on our community.’
The organisers encourage the public to seize this chance to participate in the walk and bask in the uplifting atmosphere of the Recovery Village. By doing so, we can witness the strength and resilience of individuals who have triumphed over addiction while collectively embracing the message of hope and recovery.
So, let’s unite as one community, celebrating the victories of those who have overcome addiction, and displaying our unwavering support for those currently on their journey to recovery. Join us at the UK Recovery Walk in Hull on September 23rd, where we will redefine the power of compassion and unity, and create a lasting impact on countless lives.
