In Conversation with RSY Netzer

A fascinating and moving insight into the lived experiences of two remarkable people.
One of Oli's closest friends, Liv Bloom, came up with this idea to keep busy over the Christmas/New Year holiday, while remembering Oli and supporting The Oli Leigh Trust. People were asked to post an Insta story of their favourite hobby, tag in 3 friends and donate £3 to The Oli Leigh Trust. Over the course of an amazing 3 days literally hundreds of people posted their hobby story, raising an incredible sum of over £2,200! Thank you to everyone who posted their stories and donated.
