Tributes pour in for Telford Charity Chief.

Tributes pour in for Telford Charity Chief.

Rob Eyers, who headed up Telford After Care Team in Wellington sadly passed away suddenly yesterday.

His work with addiction made huge differences to the lives of many people, and tributes have been posted to his Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/robert.eyers.5

From the TACT website: '2012 by Robert Eyers who himself endured 20 years of addiction. During his recovery Rob became aware of the lack of support available for service users in Telford like himself.

Rob set up TACT initially on a voluntary basis with a small amount of funding to help run a SMART Recovery Group and a Gardening Group. This provided people in recovery an option to do something new and prevent them from returning to their old lives.

The main aim of TACT is to assist people in recovery from using drugs or alcohol. This is achieved by improving the health and wellbeing of its service users; empowering people to lead productive and fulfilling lives so that they can once again be valued members of the community.'

    So shocked to hear this very sad news. My heart goes out to his lovely boys whom I knew when they were at secondary school. Heart breaking. I know how much they loved their dad and were really proud of him.
