Charity Work

Lee has always tried to use his job to get out into the communities that his radio show broadcasts to. He uses any opportunity to get involved with local causes and charities.

In 2007, he was asked to sit on the board of directors at a charity called Y Bont in Bridgend. Y Bont is a specialist pre-school disabled children’s centre in Bridgend. Lee remains a patron of Y Bont and keeps close links with the charity. He also served as a volunteer trustee on the board for a charity called Healing the Wounds. They work with veterans across South Wales living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Lee has recently helped his cousin, Rugby player Tom Morgan set up a Community Interest Company called Mentoring Plus UK. The aim is to help youngsters with an interest in a sport to excel, no matter what hurdles they have in their way. Lee is the chair of the board of directors at MPUK.

As someone who speaks out about overcoming past personal mental health issues, Lee is very proud to be the inaugural patron of the DPJ Foundation which is based in Pembrokeshire. The foundation is a mental health charity with an aim of helping men who work in the agricultural industry across West Wales.

Lee was the inaugural President and now life-long Vice President of Bois Goetre Hen A’r Cylch Male Voice Choir. Honourary Patron of Maesteg Gleemen Male Voice Choir and Maesteg Amateur Operatic Society.

Over the years, Lee has set himself many charity challenges. He completed his first half marathon in 2011 raising £5000 for Macmillan Cancer Support. In 2013, he became the first UK radio DJ to almost die at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro while fundraising for Dreams & Wishes. In 2016, he completed a sky-dive above Swansea to raise funds for the Children’s Hospice in Wales, Ty Hafan. The following month, he hosted the Ty Hafan annual conference and had great joy in sharing the story with the amazing nurses and staff.
