— The Samaritans
Leon took time out to offer some life advice to a group of inmates at HMYOI Feltham to mark twenty-five years of Samaritans Listening Scheme.
Leon was the perfect choice to undertake this kind of activity given his experience of prison and the lows he has suffered since his professional football career was curtailed prematurely through injury. The fact that he has since continued in his family’s footsteps by fighting for domestic boxing belts and spoken openly about his mental health issues are further testament to a never-say-die spirit distilled in adversity. These days he wants to reach out and help vulnerable youngsters and speak out as a man who has suffered, survived and thrived despite depression.
