Patrick Addis

I love helping to engage people with their community and all the sporting and social opportunities out there for them. I have co- produced a book for men, called ‘Big Boys Don’t Cry’ helping men to open up about their mental health issues. I have been working with young people for over twenty years: teaching, youth work, running camps and sporting opportunities.
