Sensory equipment for centre supporting those with learning difficulties

LIFE-ENHANCING sensory equipment can now be enjoyed by people with learning disabilities in Leamington.

Ex-army captain Will Carr raised some £3,000 for Heart of England Mencap when he completed the London marathon last year.

Will’s effort – which were given a £500 boost by his law firm employer Wright Hassall – have paid for a range of sensory equipment for the garden at Mencap’s Fordsfield day centre.

Mencap fundraising manager Cath Errington, said: “We owe a huge thanks to Will, to Wright Hassall and to everyone else who donated sponsorship. This equipment will make a big difference to a lot of people for a long time to come. Fundraising like this – no matter how big or small – enables us to provide equipment and activities to really enrich our the lives of our customers.”
