Doncaster Civic Mayor and Mayoress Cllr Paul Wray and Mrs Liz Marsden visited a Doncaster drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre to celebrate its 10th Anniversary.
The event at New Beginnings in Balby was also attended by a large group of people who have been helped by the service, along with their family and friends.
It was part of a series of activities to celebrate Recovery Week in Doncaster (7-12 September) and included a presentation of £500 to local cancer charity Aurora raised by the service’s recent Recovery Games. Visitors also took tours of the newly refurbished facilities, sampled therapies, and were treated to live music provided by a group of peer support workers.
Drug and Alcohol Service Manager Paula Brocklesby said: “This event was a celebration of recovery, and the significant role New Beginnings has played in helping Doncaster people with drug and alcohol issues to turn their lives around.
“This was highlighted in the afternoon graduation ceremony where people who have successfully completed our detox and rehabilitation programme paid tribute to the fantastic support from our staff and the excellent facilities available in Doncaster.”
