I have been a Compulsive Gambler for approximately 20 years, the illness caused me appalling levels of debt and almost cost me my home, wife and children and ultimately led me to contemplate suicide. I am now, thankfully, in recovery. I am a regular attendee of Gamblers Anonymous and I really want to contribute to highlighting and tackling the growing major issue of problem gambling. I want to now make this my life's work. I want to start off by raising £5000 which will be distributed to various Gambling Charities and also cover start up costs of eventually setting up an on going Charitable Organisation.
