Heroic double amputee war veteran to climb three peaks for Saunderton charity
HEROIC double amputee war veteran Ben McBean is set to climb three mountains in 24 hours for a Saunderton charity.
Mr McBean will scale the highest mountains in Britain; Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon alongside TV presenter and leading criminologist Mark Williams-Thomas and they are searching for 50 more heroes to join them.
The team aim to raise £25,000 for the Child Bereavement Charity (CBC) which supports families and educates professionals both when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, and when a child is facing bereavement.
Mr McBean, who lost his left arm and right leg in a Taliban landmine blast in Afghanistan in 2008, has been branded a "true hero" by Prince Harry and has overcome adversity to climb to Everest base camp and complete two marathons all for charity.
CBC's Head of Fundraising, Ian Davis, said: "This is a very tough event and people participating will need to have the necessary fitness. Ben and Mark and the team are great fun and this is a unique opportunity to join them on what will be truly inspirational challenge."
