A walk against gambling
A former gambling addict has been walking 100 miles between 6 London clubs who have a betting sponsor on their shirt in a campaign to get football to cut its ties with gambling. James Grimes, a former addict, started The Big Step project last year after recovering from the addiction that controlled his life for 12 years. We went down to see him walk from Fulham Football Club to Queen’s Park Rangers Football Club on the penultimate leg of the journey.
He and his team ended their 100 mile walk with a trip to Downing Street to give a signed letter to the Prime Minister calling for stricter measures on Gambling advertising in football.
