Richard’s LEJOG for WESC Foundation

31 July 2019

Richard Ellis has worked for WESC Foundation for over 30 years in a number of different roles. In this time he has  supported countless visually-impaired young people and their families who have been exploring education and care placements with us, and subsequently throughout their time here at WESC Foundation.

Richard is celebrating a big birthday (!) in 2019, and has set himself 60 challenges to complete before his birthday year comes to a close. One of the greatest of these challenges is a two week cycle ride from Land’s End to John o’Groats (or ‘LEJOG’), which he has decided to use to raise awareness (and some money) for the work of WESC Foundation.

Update: Richard’s fundraising page will remain open until at least the end of August 2019.
