About the Bridge Project
Bridge is a Bradford based drug treatment charity that has been established for over 20 years and each year helps hundreds of people with drugs problems.
Once a person is in the Bridge system and has completed a health screen they have access to the gym as part of their rehabilitation programme.
The gym is staffed by a team of three people who are qualified gym instructors and personal trainers. They also believe passionately that regular exercise is a great stimulus to helping people on their path to get off and stay off drugs, hence the motto on the instructors polo shirts, “Exercise – the drug of choice”.
To schedule an interview with CEO, Jon Royle, or to arrange filming, photography or to attend the awards ceremony with Stuart Honor, members of the press and production crew should contact the Bridge on 01274 723863 and ask for Caroline Marler, Gym Manager or email email@example.com.
