Leg Up Legacy
In January 2018, at the age of 19, Jack Winter died from cancer. He was determined to live life to the full - his courage, humour and constant positivity were an inspiration to everyone. It is in that spirit that Jack's Leg Up Legacy has been set up.
The Fund is administered by the award-winning charity Key4Life* as an extension of their 7-step rehabilitation programme. The charity was set up by Eva Hamilton MBE to support young men who are either in prison, or who are at risk of going to prison.
Key4Life has developed a burger van business based in Somerset called the Food Cell. The Food Cell is run and managed by young men participating in the programme providing them with an invaluable training ground.
Jack was a young entrepreneur who loved burgers and festivals and the fund is being used to create a replica burger van - Jack Winter's Leg Up Legacy. The burger van will be taken to parties, events and festivals.
The funds raised to date have enabled Key4Life to buy and fit out a prison van, wrap the van and produce t-shirts and the aprons for the staff. The fund has also paid for staff to undergo training in food and hygiene.
Jack's Leg Up Legacy was launched but Tore Andre Flo, the former Chelsea striker, at HMP Brixton on 22 September 2019.
Ongoing fundraising will help to produce a variety of marketing materials and continue to support the van and staff in every way until the van becomes self-financing.
