One of the young people being assisted by Affinity Supporting People has embarked on a charity challenge to improve his lifestyle.
Affinity is an award-winning service providing support to people with learning difficulties, mental health conditions and acquired brain injuries.
Recently, one of the young people supported by Affinity, Jonathan, decided to improve his lifestyle and lose some weight, raising money for charity in the process.
He said: “I have decided to try and lose some weight as I want to build my self confidence. I also want to be fit for football training and get to be a better player.”
Jonathan has cut out sugary treats, and now cooks his own healthy vegetable soup. So far he has lost 8lbs and is planning to join Slimming World.
Katie, a support worker for Affinity, added: “As Jonathan’s keyworker I am very proud of his motivation in his dieting."
“He has really enjoyed the process of making healthy home-made meals, from going to town to purchase all different vegetables to getting home and preparing and cooking it. I am looking forward to continuing to work with Jonathan and can’t wait to see the end result.”
To sponsor Jonathan you can contact Affinity Supporting People on 01254 304526 - Thank you.
