Keith Ingham – Rowing to St George!
Keith rows his way to his 76th birthday, raising funds for ENABLE Scotland
Hi, I’m Keith and I am completing this challenge to support ENABLE Scotland – I have been connected to ENABLE Scotland for over ten years through the work of my wife.
My particular association with learning disability is through my late brother in law, Lawrence Armstrong, who died aged 62 in 2017. My purpose is to commemorate Lawrence, a kind and gentle man.
My target is to row 2km every day on my rowing machine for 50 days. I started in early March, and this will bring me to my 100th km on my 76th birthday, 23rd April – St George’s Day.
I haven’t been directly involved in the day to day work of the charity but I am inspired by it – meeting people who have learning disabilities you quickly realise that they want the same things as anyone else but often face barriers to achieving them. The work of ENABLE Scotland helps people to break down these barriers and achieve the things that matter most to them.
With your support of my rowing challenge, we can all do our bit to create an equal society for every person who has a learning disability.
Please help me achieve my £1,000 target for this wonderful organisation by donating now at: Keith (thekiltwalk.co.uk)
