TRAFFORD Council is urging residents to get involved in a walk to raise awareness of substance use disorders and recovery from addiction.

The annual event, organised by the UK Recovery Walk Charity and held in a different city each year, takes place during Recovery Month and comes to Manchester after a successful bid from the Greater Manchester Recovery Federation.

The walk will start and finish at the 8,000 capacity Castlefield Bowl outdoor amphitheatre on Saturday, September 13.

Executive councillor for Adult Social Care and Community Wellbeing, Michael Young, said: “Being able to recognise and celebrate individual recovery journeys in this way is important.

“With so many people taking part, it provides an ideal opportunity to improve understanding of the difficulties facing those suffering from substance misuse problems, their friends and families.”

To get involved, or for information, visit ukrecoverywalk.org or email karen.cooney@trafford.gov.uk or call 0161 912 3431.
