Family Housing Support Prostate Cymru

A team from Family Housing Association Wales completed the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge in an incredible nineteen hours on Saturday 16th June. The challenge kick started the housing organisation’s year of support for their chosen charities: Prostate Cymru & Maggie’s Swansea. Maggie’s Centre Swansea is based in the grounds of Singleton Hospital and is available for anyone to drop in and get practical, emotional and social support regarding cancer from professional staff. Both charities are very special to the staff at Family Housing Association Wales as they have supported colleagues, families and friends affected by cancer.

Family Housing Association Wales are a registered social landlord established in the 1970s to meet the housing needs of families, older and more vulnerable people. The organisation manages over 2800 homes and provides a range of services to people and communities across Swansea, Neath Port Talbot, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.

The team were waved off from their head office in Swansea by Prostate Cymru’s Chief Executive Tina Tew and representatives from Maggies Swansea at a special launch event on Friday 15th June. The enthusiastic team travelled to North Wales on the Friday evening ready to start their challenge at Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales.

Despite the changeable weather, at times including rain and strong winds, the group persevered with the challenging climbs of Snowdon, Cadair Idris in Mid Wales and Pen Y Fan in South Wales completing the Welsh Three Peaks in an impressive nineteen hours, five hours under the twenty four hour timeframe.

Prostate Cymru is looking forward to working further with Family Housing Association Wales (Swansea) this year and will be providing awareness sessions for staff about men’s health and wellbeing, benign prostate disease and prostate cancer.
