You may have seen a post that we shared lately about these guys who visit our shop on regular basis, all of these guys have been fighting an addiction of some kind whether it be alcoholism to drug abuse, mental health conditions ,these guys have worked so hard to turn there lives around
Amazingly with the help of this rehab centre they have been able to do so, the centre offers weeks worth of rehab for people who have addictions.
Here at Miles for men we were so touched by how these men have turned their lives around and how the volunteers at centre have helped them on their journey that we choose to make their stay that little bit more comfortable by donating a free 40inch tv.

However unknow to us at the Extra Mile ne Chris Green who is a long time friend of Micky ( charity Founder ) had been putting parts on the van free of charge which resulted in the van being back to full working order.
