Christian enjoyed a weekend trip to London with his support worker Daisy. He watched Chicago at the West end, visited Westminster Abbey, the Victoria and Albert museum and the Natural History Museum, watched the changing of guards at Buckingham Palace, visited the Tower of London and The Globe theatre followed by a nice drink on the river Thames.
On his last day Christian was given a private tour of Westminster palace by our local MP Peter Aldous which included a lovely lunch and surprise tickets to the gallery to watch the Prime minister and Jeremy Corbyn debate! 

"I really enjoyed my weekend in London because it was a weekend filled with stuff I had always wanted to do. My highlight was my tour round the palace of Westminster with Peter Aldous, it was beautiful, very interesting, steeped in history and I even got to see the Prime Minister and Jeremy Corbyn debate which was incredible. I am proud of myself as during the weekend I learnt how to use the London underground. Although I was pretty tired when I got home it was a weekend filled with fantastic memories I will never forget. I would like to thank Leading lives, Peter Aldous and Daisy for enabling me to go on this weekend."
