Name

Kris Sommerville

Fundraiser, Scotland

I wanted to help fund raise for the foundation for a few reasons but mostly to give something back to a brave young man who gave so much for us. I am passionate about keeping Lees name alive and anything I can do to make that happen I will. I’ve previously sponsored two football matches in Lees name and look forward to hosting our annual visit to Glasgow for a night with friends.
