Autumn Term 2020
'The Perils of Gambling Addiction'
Professional Cricketers' Trust

The heartfelt agony of reformed gambling addict Patrick Foster was laid bare in a gripping talk to Sixth Formers last month that reduced some students to tears. In a devastatingly frank account, the former professional cricketer and teacher detailed how a pathological addiction to gambling and online gaming ripped his life apart, driving him to the brink of suicide.
Having since turned his life around, Patrick described his path to recovery and warned students against the dangers of being sucked into the same destructive spiral.

His powerful testimony was one of the most captivating school talks the CSPA has organised.
