Matt’s Story

Supporter Matt will tackle the National Three Peaks Challenge this month in memory of his late uncle.

Matt will never forget how his uncle, Ianlooked after his mum Julie after their parents died over a decade ago. 

Julie’s son, Matt, is now raising funds for St Ann’s where Ian spent two weeks as a patient before he died of lung cancer last September. 

Matt, from Marple, said:

Ian was like a father figure to my mum and a loving uncle, brother and son who sacrificed a great deal to allow his sister and her family a comfortable life. He'd do anything for my mum and was always supportive of his family. Matt Crowther, Supporter

Matt had to delay his Three Peaks climb because of Covid-19 and he’s hoping it goes ahead this month while following social distancing guidelines. Even if he cannot climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon because of restrictions, he plans to adapt his challenge. 

St Ann's made my uncle as comfortable as possible and our family are grateful for their love and support before and after he died. Matt Crowther, Supporter
