Wow – how impressed were we with the stamina of Mr Ihenacho (dubbed ‘Leo the Lion’ by Mike Skinner during his time in The Streets) last week as he gave it his all for every single one of the 24 performances in 24 hours – plus he completed the challenge with a whopping 20 minutes to spare!
Now – Leo did all this to raise a bit of cash for The Prince’s Trust – a charity close to his heart. You might think, being Royal, that they have loads of gold coinage kicking about but actually it goes to helping young people live out their professional dreams, just like Leo.
Leo says ‘the Prince’s Trust helped me out when I was starting out in the music industry and gave me a grant to start my own recording studio and so I am giving back to help give up and coming artists that same opportunity.’
Watch what Leo did last week and if you like what you see, give a lion some lovin by donating a little to the charity. All you need to do is text LION82 £3 (or any amount) to 70070 – 100% of this donation goes direct to the charity. Please also help Leo out by tweeting this or putting the story up on your blog (#Leo24Gigs)
