Prince William's message for team Homebase
Centrepoint patron the Duke of Cambridge recorded a good luck message for Homebase's Andrew Carnie and his team as they embarked on a race to the South Pole to raise £250,000 for the homeless charity.

The team completed the race in 23 days, coming in third place, despite 80mph winds, temperatures of -45 degrees, and an incident, which left Homebase trading director Mr Carnie with a fractured arm.

The team have raised more than £200,000 so far but it's not too late to sponsor them. To show your support, visit and make a donation.

Read more about the expedition in the February 24 issue of DIY Week.
