On the 29th & 30th of July four members of the Lee family will be attempting to complete the ‘three peaks challenge’ to raise money for St Clare’s Hospice in honour of Carl Oliver Joseph Lee.
St Clare Hospice based in Hastingwood, Essex was established in 1990 and has since provided end of life care for thousands of patients. The service they provide is invaluable to the community, helping the terminally ill to live the end of their life to the fullest and when the time comes, to pass with grace and dignity. However St Clare only receives limited funding and cannot continue to provide the care they do without public donations.
St Clare Hospice was involved in a very personal time for the Lee family, providing care for Carl Lee during the last month of his life. Carl was a beloved Husband, married to Mavis Lee for 50 years, Farther, Grandfather and friend to many, passing on the 27th of March 2015, aged 78. During his retirement Carl made the most of life, regularly engaging in a range of activities including gardening, swimming and playing lawn bowls. His presence was always greatly enjoyed, whatever the occasion and he is sadly missed.
The Lee family want to raise some money for St Clare Hospice so that they can continue to do their amazing work, helping out others families the same way they have helped ours.
The three peaks challenge involves attempting to climb the highest peaks in Scotland (Ben Nevis, 1,345m), England (Scafell Pike, 978m) and Wales (Snowdon, 1,085m) in under 24 hours. The challenge will be attempted by Carl’s son’s David and Mark and plus two of his grandchildren Kieran and Claudia. All money donated here except the 5% crowdfunder fee (nothing in life is free) will be donated to St Clare’s Hospice. The cost of the challenge will be paid for by the Lee family.
