Paul, Paul, Paul, where do we start?

You certainly are a larger than life presence, full to the brim of enthusiasm, compassion, hard work and always joking about!  And this is why the members and your teammates love you!

The last few years have been really challenging during Covid, but you and your teammates have done everything you could to keep Leep 1 up and running at top speed.  Because of digital skills sessions your team were able to stay in contact with members throughout the pandemic and offer a large variety of fun and informative teaching online.  Be there for those struggling emotionally and with mental health issues, bringing members closer into more of a family, The Leep 1 Family!  

 Besides the support there needs to be fun, and you have always brought that to Leep 1. Since having members returning at the end of 2020, your team have worked with both members at home and in the workplace.  Pauls 10 min workout has been a big hit and the Healthy living sessions and Kahoots galore. He puts so much fun and laughter into them, awful singing, joking about, dancing and falling over, I know the members can’t get enough. It’s learning through fun and it is a comfort.

 2021 has brought us a little more freedom and following Health and Safety covid procedures we have been able to have our members back at Leep1 HQ.

Seeing our members isolating at home all that time, many unable to get out at all was very upsetting.

So Paul decided that when we got back, we were going to make the most of it and get out every day possible.  We have done just that, visiting – Harrogate, Otley, Golden Acre park, Roundhay park, going into town and following Owl and Dinosaur trails walking along the Canal and visiting many more places. Taking packed lunches along with us, we walk and talk and smile and laugh getting Vit-D, exercise and new experience along the way, everyone so excited to see how many steps they have done.  Good Mental health and wellbeing at the end of the day.

Paul has given so much of himself to Leep 1, made so many fun memories for all who know him, he’s  truly going to be greatly missed,

With love in our hearts from your Leep 1 family xxx
