‘I know how hard it can be’
Lorri Haines says of the appointment:
‘It’s a privilege to be named as a Nacoa Ambassador and I’m so looking forward to being part of everything the charity delivers for people who are, or have been, affected by alcohol abuse.
“As a child I suffered the effects of living with adults who were addicted to alcohol, and the repercussions of that are something I still live with now in many ways. But I’ve really worked hard to make sure that I’m not defined by those early challenges and to build a life that involves positive choices and fulfilling and loving relationships.
“I know how hard it can be to live in a household that’s tainted by alcohol abuse but equally I want to help others move forward from their past to create a happier story for themselves in the future and I’m so pleased to be doing that through Nacoa.”
