We give opportunities & real possibilities to to young people!


Thanks for visiting my page. We, Councillor Mick Legg and Mandy Legg, will be raising money for the SOFEA as one of my chosen charities during my Mayoral year and I'd be so grateful for your support.

SOFEA was founded in 2014, with the focus of enabling the transformation of people's lives. We are a charity head quartered in Didcot with a second location added in Milton Keynes. Using surplus food, we distribute to thousands of people per week, across our local communities. We work with disadvantaged people, (mostly young people) helping them gain qualifications in English and Maths, providing work experience and offering wellbeing support.
