Harpenden foursome take on the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge
A GROUP of charitable members from Harpenden Lions Club will be tackling the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge this weekend (May 19), to raise money for Prostate Cancer Research.
Brian Edwards, Paul Nield, Tony Usher and Bengie Walden, who are collectively known as the ‘Harpenden Lions 259’ due to the total of their ages, will climb Welsh mountains Snowdon, Cadair Idris, and Pen y Fan in 24 hours.
The team successfully raised over �2,000 for Prostate Cancer Research last year by climbing Helvellyn in the Lake District.
Combined with a greater challenge and the full backing of Harpenden Lions Club the team are hoping to raise even more than their previous efforts.
Bengie said: “We want to beat last year’s amazing sum so that we can make even more of a difference to prostate cancer survival.

Bengie added: “Over the past 12 months, like us, you have probably heard of friends and relatives being diagnosed with prostate cancer.
“The good news is that more people are surviving what is one of the biggest killers in the UK male population, which is a result of catching the disease early through funding the best research and educating medical professionals.”
