Event description

Description

Justyn Rees Larcombe had it all. Around his beautiful home were the mementoes of success the Sword of Honour awarded by the Queen when he left Sandhurst; the silver photo frames with the pictures of his much-loved wife and family; the rooms full of rewards of a City career. But Justyn had a parallel life: he gambled. Gradually he allowed it to take over everything, getting through a staggering three quarters of a million pounds some his own money, some his wife s, and some belonging to the company he worked for. The crunch came; he lost his job, his wife left him, taking his sons; and anything that could be sold was and then gambled away again. One day, he had no alternative but to go back to his mother s home and start again.

Today Justyn has a high profile in the media, talking about the dangers of gambling and helping others coping with gambling addiction.
