Leonard is always striving to make other peoples dreams and wishes a reality. The Charity has gained the Queens Award for Voluntary service of which Leonard is extremely proud and Leonard himself has recently recieved the top honour of an MBE which was presented by HRH The Queen, for Leonard's Contributions to the Community. Leonard manages to achieve this by running Donna's Dream House Charity in memory of his late daughter Donna, and providing much needed free breaks for children with life threatening illnesses and their families. Len works so hard sacrificing so much of his own time to achieve the success of the Charity. Len also helps others through the running of the Charity by allowing School Children to attend for work experiece and providing a range of opportunities to members of the Prince's Trust. Len works alongside HMP Kirkham with inmates to enable them to volunteer at the Charity and gain new confidence and belief before their release back into the community and into paid jobs after their time at Donna's Dream House. Leonard is a very respected member of the local community and a worthy candidate for carrying the Olympic Torch.
