Humankind Ride for Recovery

Visit the Ride for Recovery Just Giving page 

A team made up of staff from Humankind’s services across the country, which set off from our Redbank Recovery Accommodation service in Manchester has completed its 170 mile journey to Teesside.  

The bike ride aimed to highlight the many ways to achieve recovery from substance misuse and also to raise money for people who use our services.

The group rode from Manchester, across the Pennines, arriving in Middlesbrough for the start of the FAVOR UK Recovery Walk.

They called in at Humankind-led drug and alcohol recovery service locations all along the journey.

Paul Townsley, Chief Executive Officer of Humankind, will be among the cyclists.

He said: “Humankind is a major sponsor of the Favor UK Recovery Walk this year, which is being held in Middlesbrough. We wanted to show our support for this cause with this Ride for Recovery. Raising money and awareness to improve the lives of our service users will demonstrate that."
