Luke Plans Climbing Challenge in Memory of Brother Ceri

A family tragedy has inspired brave Luke Collins to take on a charity challenge aimed at helping men struggling with their mental health.

Glangarnant’s Luke will climb Pen-Y-Fan, the highest point in South Wales, on 15th September in aid of Andy’s Man Club.

The male suicide prevention charity is a cause that’s very important to Luke’s family as his brother Ceri took his own life in October 2022.

Ceri had worked hard with Andy’s Man Club to support others in need, and Luke wants to raise money to continue that vital work.

His fundraiser already stands at over £1,400, and he hopes to drive the total even higher as his colleagues, his wonderful family, and friends cheer him on.

Glangarnant Service Manager Michelle Williams said that Luke was an inspiration to everyone.

Michelle said: “It takes a special person to take such a terrible tragedy and use it to do something so positive.

“We’re all rooting for Luke to conquer Pen-Y-Fan for Ceri, his family, and Andy’s Man Club

“They are a fantastic resource for men struggling to cope with mental health challenges, providing free peer support.

“There’s still so much stigma around male mental health, so raising awareness and funds for Andy’s Man Club is really important.”

“We will all be alongside Luke on the climb, encouraging his every step to get to the top for his brother. We’ll be saying, ‘Luke, we know you can do this!’”
