EKM members are taking up a 30-Day Challenge to raise £3,000 for people with a learning disability to enjoy more fitness and wellbeing activities.
Having missed his regular swimming sessions, Stephen wanted to challenge himself to do something new that would also help others.
“We love trying new things, like exercising or doing an art project. It makes us feel confident and more independent”
Stephens's fellow members loved the idea and now they’re busy taking up their challenges.
Will you support them?
In March 2020, our member Natalie contracted Covid 19 and was admitted to hospital. After a six week long battle, Natalie heroically fought off the virus and was able to return home.
EKM staff were there to support her in hospital and at home. Support Worker Maria helped Natalie to enjoy a range of activities including arts and crafts, singing, socially distanced socialising, birthday celebrations, and virtual Day Resource sessions.
Natalie had to learn to walk again. As a focus, she set herself the challenge to walk 39 step unsupported, and in doing so raise funds for us.
