Steph Shilton appears on Welsh radio to advocate for a cause that’s close to her heart.
Steph Shilton has been interviewed on BBC Radio Wales in an appearance arranged by MN2S PR. Shilton, the wife of former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton, worked at a high level within England’s NHS for 27 years. She spoke on BBC Radio this month about the Six to Ten Project, a charitable initiative that she’s working with closely. Supporting those affected by gambling addiction, the project has a particular resonance for Shilton, as her husband struggled to battle an addiction to gambling for several decades.
Ara is a charitable organization that provides essential help for those suffering from addiction and mental health issues across Wales and southwest England. Based in Bristol, their motto is “Recovery for All”, and they’ve had much success helping those suffering from gambling addiction. Ara has recently launched the Six to Ten Project. This is a partnership initiative with two other UK charities that places those directly affected by an individual’s harmful gambling at the centre of care. This means that the family and friends of gambling addicts now have somewhere to find free and confidential help and advice – for both them and the person gambling.
