GB-LArche_London-Toni_Leahy-Photo “I am Toni Leahy. I have lived in L’Arche London since 1977. I like going for a walk. It’s good for my health and keeps me refreshed and relaxed.

Music is another of my favourite things. I like listening to Cliff Richard, Elvis Presley and the Beatles and singing along. I like having a gentle and relaxing time with my favourite music on and looking through the magazines with lots of pictures.

I also enjoy drawing and craft work and often make cards or paintings for my friends. I work in the craft, making beautiful rugs.”
