“Unknown to many people I spent 20 years battling with addiction. From the age of 15 to 35 I drank destructively. I first sought help for my addiction at the age of 21 but I was to be 35 before I put my glass down for the last time.Â Since then, as part of my recovery I have raised over ÂŁ54,000 for charities through a series of extreme endurance events. This culminated in being one of only 21 people to have completed the Arch to Arc, the worldâ€™s hardest triathlon in September 2014.I also became the oldest person ever to succeed at the event”
