East Kent Mencap’s Getting On with Learning Difficulties (GOLD) Project thanked Leon Williams for his generous contribution, after he ran the equivalent of 2 marathons to raise money. As the founder of Leon’s Ultimate Mind and Body Activities (LUMBA), Leon is passionate about health and wellbeing, so he decided to put his fitness to the test by undertaking this gruelling challenge.
East Kent Mencap’s GOLD Project supports people with a learning difficulty in Thanet by providing information about benefits, housing, debt and budgeting, volunteering, leisure activities, meeting people and campaigning, as well as providing confidential support. At the moment this is happening online in line with the government’s COVID-19 restrictions, but support can be provided for those who need some assistance with using technology.
Well done to Leon for this amazing achievement, and many thanks for raising money for the GOLD project!
