Story

“This challenge is for me to support and create further awareness about children who have to deal with disruptive childhoods through their parents alcoholic abuse, which can create loneliness for many children

My father was a great man, but he was an alcoholic, who was never there for me and it affected me in the long term. Consequently I had some deep, dark issues  of not having my dad around.


I was always thinking "Why doesn’t he love me?" I would come from the US to the UK and people would say "Oh no he’s been talking about you coming for ages, he can’t wait to see you” and then I would show up and he’d go on a bender and I would think "Ah Jesus, well did I just drive him to drink even harder?”. 'I hear every day "You’re father’s a legend". But sometimes people forget that for me personally, he’s still my dad and he’s still someone I had to deal with as an alcoholic.”
