NC500 draws ever closer.

We are nearing the major attempt at doing the NC500 route on a unicycle by Bruce Rose. This is to raise awareness and raise funds for the Sinclair Method’s use in Scotland. Bruce has set up and is running Alcohol Recovery Scotland and is trying to raise awareness of the 78% success rate of this method of treating Alcohol dependency issues.

No final logistics have been fully arranged but it is hoping to go ahead as follows: –

Leaving from outside Inverness Caledonian Thistle’s football ground on the morning of the 17th at approximately 9 am and heading northbound over the Kessock Bridge.

Bruce has had to learn to go on a unicycle to do this amazing challenge as he hadn’t even tried one before. He is hoping to do around 30 miles per day.

The date has now been set and the countdown is on for the event, We wish Bruce all the very best.

How can you help?

They are some ways you can help, you can follow the NC500 Facebook page and follow Bruce’s progress. There are photos and videos of his training sessions. Also, there is a giving page to help fund the event and help with raising awareness.

Bruce is also saying that the following would be a great help if you or someone you know could help: –

  • If any corporation or business would like to sponsor the camper van needed for the event to follow Bruce around
  • If any corporation or business would like to sponsor the video and media that would follow Bruce around
  • There will also be a support vehicle for Bruce, behind him on all the routes for his protection and carrying spares, etc. He is saying that advertising on this vehicle could be purchased and your company logo would be seen on the vehicle as it goes around the NC500.

If any of these are for you and your organisation then fill in the contact form and let Bruce know and he will get back to you.

NC500 Challenge to raise awareness and funding

Excellent Results continue with our program

Results Graph

We are always amazed with the results of our alcohol recovery program. They say a picture paints a thousand words. The above graph is the alcohol intake of a client. A company director who was drinking 120 units per week (12/13 bottles of wine a week). Today, the craving has gone completely and they are easily able, (without white-knuckling it), to reduce their weekly intake to 20 units and below.
