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 www.justgiving.com/South-Pole-Race-2012 and make a donation.
