On the 30th September 2012, Mencap will be hosting its annual Mencap Mile event, where Niamh Robinson, T.P Properties' sponsored swimmer and future Olympian, will get the opportunity to swim one mile in the prestigious Dorney Lake in Windsor. Of course Dorney Lake will always be known as the place which staged the Olympic and Paralympic Games rowing and kayaking events. It seems fitting that we launch this event not just at the end of the 'Games' but also on Niamh's 13th birthday.
People with a learning disability, their families and carers are at the heart of everything Mencap and T.P Properties does. The money raised from this event will go straight to supporting Mencap’s work to challenge prejudice and campaign for the changes that people with a learning disability want and need to allow them to live an independent life.
Please help us to support Niamh and this worthwhile cause; it is inspiring that a 13 year old will challenge her apprehensions to aid the people we help to find a home. Follow her progress on facebook, and if you want to donate see her Virgin Money Giving page. We and her would be very appreciative.
