Lee prepares to take on Three Peaks for autism charity

Jet Aire’s Operations Manager, Lee Whitear, is preparing to conquer Yorkshire’s Three Peaks in support of the National Autistic Society.


As a former Royal Engineer Army Serviceman, Lee has the natural fitness and endurance to take on the physical challenge of scaling Pen-y-Ghent (summit 694 metres), Whernside (summit 736 metres) and Ingleborough (summit 723 metres) in the space of one day. He will be setting off on 19 May as part of a fundraising team which includes a number of people with autism.


Lee said:


“My younger brother has autism, so it’s a cause which means a great deal to me. I know other people who have completed the Three Peaks and I’m sure it will be a very testing challenge, but I’m looking forward to it. I’ve got a fundraising target of £500 and I’ve set up a fundraising page to make it easy to donate.”


Lee will be the second Jet Aire employee to take on Yorkshire’s Three Peaks in the past 12 months. In June 2018, our Senior Survey Processor, Craig Grassham, overcame some energy-sapping heat and severe cramp to complete the journey in support of the mental health charity, Mind.


The National Autistic Society is committed to transforming lives, changing attitudes and creating a society that works for autistic people. The charity aims to increase opportunities, reduce social isolation and build a brighter future for autistic people. Further information is available at www.autism.org.uk
