Delivering news of redundancy to former colleagues made Jimmy a victim of assault, leading to an epilepsy diagnosis. His means of making a living as a physical worker were gone. A spell of homelessness after splitting with his partner was broken when a Labrador woke him from sleep in a park. Jimmy roused himself and his innate curiosity propelled him back into education. Now a community worker, helping people make sense of their experiences through music, he intends to complete the degree he started with the Open University after attending college courses in computer literacy. Jimmy volunteers for Petrus running a weekly music group.

“Get back on your bike!”
