A heartwarming story….

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39207716
Today’s trawl through the BBC News website reveals a heartwarming story of a man who lost his father to suicide, very nearly went the same way himself, but has recovered through his love of football to get his life back on track. Absolutely superb to hear that sport, which I love, is playing a role in revitalising lives shattered by the scourge of mental illness. 

Reading the story brought a lump to my throat, and there’s a lesson there that the odds can be overcome to produce outstanding role models in society, and we do need them. 

Enjoy the story by clicking on the link, it’ll be worth your while.
