‘Amarillo’ by Leep 1

Inspired by Peter Kay’s Amarillo video with the Great British Public we decided to try our hand at making a Leep1 Lockdown version too. We had so much fun and it gave us all good giggle and pick me up!

Our members filmed their performances at home and sent us their videos via messenger. Everyone’s films were absolutely brilliant and each one was so different. There was dressing up, great dance moves, fancy backgrounds and even comedy!

The final edited verion was shown as a surprise at our 10th birthday party online.We hope you enjoy watching our film as much as we enjoyed making it!

‘Our Voice’ a film by Leep1 members

Leep1 facebook group is a place where everyone supports each other. Many of the members of the group run activities for others to enjoy. Some members take on admin roles at the weekends while staff have a short break, and others may produce short information videos or play live music and DJ for us in the evenings. Being an active part of the group helps our members feel valued, stay positive and improves mental health.

We asked some of our members how the group had supported them during lockdown and whether the group was helping them cope with being isolated…..

We’ve got the T-shirt!

Over the weeks fashion and clothes has been a topic of conversation on the Facebook group page.

We’ve had T-shirt braiding classes, Corvid mask making using old t shirts but the highlight has to be one of our members designing a printed T-shirt to tell the world how much they love Leep1!
