Postman Stefan Latter will take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in May in aid of a children’s cancer charity.

Joining Stefan, 41, on the challenge will be his wife, Suzanne, and their friends, husband and wife David and Sarah Murphy. The four are raising money for CLIC Sargent which helped close friends of theirs, Carl and Julie, when their eight-year-old son Adam Parker fell ill with lymphoma and sadly died in 2014. They aim to walk the 23.5 miles of Yorkshire’s toughest peaks and terrain in 12 hours or less on May 31.

Stefan enjoys hiking and has completed the challenge once before, in 11-and-a-half hours. He said: “Carl, Julie and Jack lost their son and brother Adam to lymphoma at the age of eight in October 2014, and CLIC Sargent were a great support to them. As a team we are brought together with a strong link to Cliffedale Primary School where Adam loved to be with all his friends. David was one of his teachers and my wife works at Cliffedale so it is close to our hearts.”

Stefan added: “We want to raise as much money as possible for CLIC Sargent which helps young people and their families living with cancer.”
