On Saturday, 15th September, I took part in the Recovery Walk 2018 which was held in Glasgow. The event began with a memorial ceremony for people's loved ones who have lost their lives through alcohol, drugs and mental ill health. Flowers were placed in the River Clyde to remember their lives.

The Recovery Walk involved groups from all over Scotland in a walk through the city centre, starting and finishing at Glasgow Green.
This annual walk is a celebration for people in recovery from addiction along with their families and friends, but it also offers hope to those still struggling with addiction. The Recovery Network is seeking more resources to support people recovering from addictions. The next walk takes place in Inverness in mid-September 2019.
