We are delighted that Jo is fundraising for us in the next London Marathon.
“Some may call it a miracle..others may call it a great mishap! Either way, the ballot has decided that I am running the London marathon 2019, which will possibly take me until 2020 to finish!
The charity I am going to run for is Winchester Go LD- formerly Winchester Mencap. A learning disability has been defined as ‘a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities – for example household tasks, socialising or managing money – which affects someone for their whole life’. As many of you know, my sister Katie has hydrocephalus and cerebral palsy. I have witnessed first hand how much she values having a sense of independence and normality. Winchester Go LD helps to support individuals with learning disabilities with housing, work, socialising and any other everyday difficulties. By donating you can help to fund a range activities from afternoon tea, a weekly low level circuits support worker or 1:1 staff time to complete a person centred plan.
Please help me to support this small local charity, which due to government cuts desperately needs more recognition for the fantastic work it does- THANK YOU!!!”
