FIVE people took on the Brecon Beacons challenge in aid of charity.

First-time trekkers Aaron Reeves, Andrew Vickers, Mel Knight, Paul Rockey and Rachel Hart work for Team LLumar in Cosham, which makes window films.

They took on 29 miles of the Brecon Beacons, in South Wales, for the British Skin Foundation. So far they have raised £776 but they hope to raise at least £1,000.

The team, aged from 29 to 47, were inspired to raise funds for the British Skin Foundation after working with them in a professional capacity on the LLumar AU 85 – a virtually transparent film which is applied to car windows to protect those inside from the harmful effects of the sun, including harmful UVAs.

Mel said: ‘We are very grateful to the British Skin Foundation for having recognised the potential of LLumar AU 85 in terms of protecting people’s skin from the sun’s harmful rays, and we wanted to give them something back. This is why we decided to trek the Brecon Beacons.’
