Local businessman Chris Lye, who owns and runs the Ipswich office of at-home care company, Home Instead Senior Care, completed the 100 mile Isle of Skye Trail including a climb up the Inaccessible Pinnicle, raising £780 for St Elizabeth Hospice.
Having just about recovered from the adventure, Chris commented, “The trek certainly put me through my paces, especially the roped climb up the In Pinn, especially as I am not great with heights!
Chris completed the walk in memory of one of his team of caregivers, Beverley Quinn, who sadly passed away on Christmas Eve last year, following a short illness.
“Owning a business which specialises in looking after older people in their own homes, St Elizabeth Hospice is a charity that is extremely important to me. I was keen to really get behind them in order to raise money for the fantastic support services they offer to people in and around Ipswich.”
