Meet Alumbeni. He enjoys taking part in many sporting activities. His favourites include swimming, karate, football and kayaking.
Not only does he benefit from the physical aspect – gaining crucial exercise and gaining upper body muscle – Alumbeni and his family have identified a great improvement in his conversational skills, demonstrating a never-before seen confidence. This is due, in no small part, to the sessions he enjoys with Victoria – Alumbeni beams that this is his favourite aspect of Heel & Toe!
Alumbeni has a disability that affects his walking, his speech and his posture, but that has not stopped him from achieving Silver Level in the Duke of Edinburgh Award. It is through his association with the award scheme and the Scouts that Alumbeni has made the most friends. He is looking forward to a future where he works with animals.
