It was all smiles at Harrow Mencap when our ambassador Brendan met with local fundraiser Stefano at our head office.

Stefano who works as an accountant, ran the Harrow Half Marathon and raised over £1000 for Harrow Mencap after reading an article in the Harrow Times about how Brendan was subjected to abuse by a gang of teenage boys while out collecting. 

Stefano had regularly seen Brendan out volunteering in the community and was keen to finally stop by and meet the man himself.

Harrow Mencap set up the meeting and the pair had a fantastic time getting to know one another. 

Stefano said:

It’s been awesome to meet our local celebrity Brendan and now next time I see him around Harrow, I’ll be sure to stop and say hello.

Brendan said:

It was very nice to see Stefano and take a picture, it made my day.
