"Patrick's talk to our Sixth form was a wonderful example of how to engage teenagers with a PSHE topic through powerful storytelling. Gambling is an issue that is becoming an increasing worry for schools and parents alike and Patrick delivers information and advice on the topic in an engaging manner. His own personal battle with gambling addiction is both moving and poignant and tugs at the heart strings of all those who have been affected by any type of addiction, whether that has been gambling or
not. Moreover, the fact that Patrick's manner with his audience is as relatable as his story means that our teenagers quickly warmed to him and more significantly sided with his battle to raise awareness about such an increasingly important topic. We are extremely grateful to Patrick for his time."
