Celebration of Recovery

Winchester Cathedral – Saturday, 25th August 25 - 10am–4pm

There will be a ‘Celebration of Recovery’ at Winchester Cathedral in the Outer Close. Visitors of all ages will be able to enjoy activities as part of an event to raise awareness of services such as AA, Al-Anon, the Night Shelter and Samaritans, helping those who are recovering from alcohol and drug addiction and those who are  struggling with mental illness.

This year  – the centenary of end of the Great War – is also the centenary of the formation of the RAF, as well as the visit by a soldier to Winchester Cathedral which inspired the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous. This will definitely be a celebration event, it is well worth a visit and I hope you can recommend it to your congregation.
