Justyn Rees Larcombe at Forging Men, Billericay
Event on 2017-10-30 20:00:00
Come and hear our guest speaker: Justyn Rees Larcombe, and enjoy a man-sized buffet meal! Justyn Rees Larcombe had it all. Around his beautiful home were the mementoes of success – the Sword of Honour awarded by the Queen when he left Sandhurst; the silver photo frames with the pictures of his much-loved wife and family; the rooms full of rewards of a City career. But Justyn had a parallel life: he gambled. Gradually he allowed it to take over everything, getting through a staggering £750,000 – some his own money, some his wife’s, and some belonging to the company he worked for. The crunch came; he lost his job, his wife left him, taking his sons; and anything else was sold and then gambled away again. One day, he had no alternative and turned back to the God he’d left behind. He now uses his story of destructive compulsive gambling to help others struggling with addiction and living secret lives. He is an author, speaker and the founder of a recovery charity.
