Lee has had a varied career. Touring professional tennis coach for many years, working overseas with 3 ex-wimbledon champions. Property developing and restauranter to councellor. After selling his business in 2013 started volunteering in drugs and alcohol recovery after the death of his wife some years before. He went on to do this work full time for 4 years before coming to Nepal in 2017. During this time he met with Jane Doherty running U-Turn a rehab centre in London for homeless men and she later became a co-founder with him of Unite Nepal.
Lees vision has inspired so many over the years and his lifetime of leadership has meant never being in any fear of risk. As he says “if you don’t try then you wont know, will you” It is because of this attitude that he was able to embark on this mission in Nepal and be able to make such decisions taking full responsibility himself and now making such a difference to hundreds of peoples lives. Please read his story on our website.
