North Yorkshire Horizons an “absolutely fantastic service”

Paul Hobson, a volunteer at North Yorkshire Horizons in Selby was inspired by the service’s screening of the film Anonymous People at Selby Town Hall and spoke to the audience, unprompted.

He gave a moving testimony about what Horizons had done for him.

​”This month I am celebrating the third year in my recovery . (cheers) What I would like to say is to make recovery happen you have to embrace everything, take every opportunity you can, use places like North Yorkshire Horizons.

“​They are an absolutely fantastic service. Without their help I would not be where I am today. A couple of years ago I decided to become a smart facilitator and hopefully now I inspire people to help them in their own recovery. Thank you very much.”
