Lee plans a tour of Knole House in Sevenoaks on his walking frame to raise funds for Children in Need

A big-hearted Sevenoaks resident, who was recently diagnosed with an advanced and inoperable brain tumour which has left him almost wheelchair bound, is aiming to overcome his health issues to raise money for Children in Need.

Lee Adamson, aged 61, plans to walk around Knole House on a walking frame as part of the BBC Countryfile TV series annual ramble challenge to raise funds for the children’s charity

Lee originally set himself the modest target of raising £300 but donations have already gone over the £3,000 mark.

He said: “I’ve always loved walking and hiking and Countryfile has long been one of my favourite TV programmes. So, the opportunity to do some good by joining in the annual Countryfile ramble seems too good to miss. Please help if you can!”

Lee’s illness means he has been forced into early retirement from his work as Head of Communications for IMO, the UN’s shipping agency. He and his wife Hils have been involved in many aspects of the Sevenoaks Community since they moved to the area 27 years ago.
