A WREXHAM mum will be hiking up Snowdon to raise funds for Wales Air Ambulance (WAA) in memory of her late partner.

Lee Pemberton, 44, was tragically killed in a road accident in June 2022, just eight-weeks after celebrating the birth of his little girl, Raya-Mae. 

In a bid to express her sincere gratitude to everybody at WAA who attempted to save her partner's life, Gemma Lee Roberts from Pen-Y-Cae, Wrexham will be hiking Snowdon on July 30.

The Leader:

The challenge is just one of her fundraising efforts in aid of WAA.

On June, 1, she completed the Walk Wales Challenge while pushing her youngest daughter in a pram. They completed a total distance of just over 100 miles throughout May, despite the initial target being 64 miles. 

The Leader:

Gemma said: “We took on this challenge to help raise crucial funds that can help keep the Wales Air Ambulance Charity going as it was them who tried to save Lee’s life before he unfortunately died. 

“They were amazing and tried their hardest to save him which unfortunately wasn’t the outcome we hoped for, but I will forever be grateful for what they did. "

Gemma is also arranging for a raffle to be held and is asking people and local businesses to donate prizes. She has already received afternoon teas, MOTs, food vouchers, nail sets and hampers. 

Lee also leaves behind his other three children, Ellie, 18, Benny, 6, and Beau, 5, as well as close friends and family.  

He is described by Gemma as a popular, hardworking man who always helped others in his spare time. He is sadly missed by all who knew him.
