Double Impact’s Nottinghamshire Academy service, which supports people in recovery in Mansfield, Ashfield and beyond, has been awarded a grant of just under £40k which will allow it to continue to run for a further 6 months.
This Sunday, Graham Miller, CEO of Double Impact, ran 26 kilometres (a ‘Metric Marathon’) in his back garden, in a ‘lockdown-friendly’ bid to raise funds for Double Impact and other charities across the UK.
Over the past two weeks Double Impact staff have pulled out all the stops to launch an online recovery network, to continue to support vulnerable people in recovering from addiction since lockdown conditions were imposed.
Double Impact are working hard to continue to provide alternative ways of supporting its service users during the Covid-19 outbreak. In addition to this, we would encourage our service users to take advantage of the other forms of support which are accessible, in order to stay as connected and focused on recovery as possible.
Café Sobar is a local community enterprise. We are all unsure what is going to happen over the coming period but we would like to encourage you all to be as community spirited as is possible. With this in mind we would like to keep you informed in light of the recent outbreak of COVID-19.
Double Impact and Cafe Sobar are delighted to announce that the National Lottery Community Fund have awarded us a grant for three years to further develop Cafe Sobar into a community asset and improve social inclusion for people recovering from drug and alcohol problems.
Friday 29th November saw the 2019 Spirit of Recovery Awards take place, hosted by Cafe Sobar, our social enterprise in Nottingham.
Café Sobar, the award-winning social enterprise where all profits go to the addiction recovery charity Double Impact, is offering a thoughtful alternative to the usual office Christmas party. For £25 per head you can enjoy a Christmas mocktail upon arrival, three mouth-watering courses, and tea or coffee.
I can’t believe it’s a year since our Recovery Running Team took on the Robin Hood Half to celebrate our 20th Birthday as a Charity. This year our “Magnificent Seven” signed up to take on a tough course around our beautiful home city of Nottingham.
After the marathon task (excuse the pun!) of running 20 half marathons in 2018 I took a break from blogging about running but continued to run of course! This year has been a different challenge for me as I have been quietly clocking up the miles in my 1200 miles in 12 months challenge.
