Frame: Leonard Cheshire ✨

While I was browsing the web, I saw this weeks Photo challenge. I was at work and there it was, my this weeks ‘frame’.

Pilot Leonard Cheshire, founder of Leonard Cheshire Disabilit(originally Leonard Chesire Foundation). In 1948, Cheshire founded the charity. The charity provides support to disabled people, throughout the world. The first home Cheshire opened was called Le Court, with a total of eight patents which went up to 28 within six months(the patients being disabled ex-servicemen). Cheshire dedicated the rest of his life to support disabled people, combining this with lecturing on conflict resolution. Sadly in 1992 Chesire died of motor neurone disease, at age 74.
