The team included category and procurement managers as well as chief executive for Saint-Gobain Building Distribution Peter Hindle, MBE. It involved a climb to the summits of three of Yorkshire's highest peaks in less than 12 hours, covering 25 miles and a total ascent of around 6,000 ft.

Jewson category manager and organiser of the walk Richard Carter said: "I'm delighted that the Three Peaks Challenge has been such a success and we have managed to raise such a significant amount of money for Barnardo's.

"It's a truly worthwhile cause and the contribution we can now make is a real testament to all those who dedicated time, effort and determination to take part in the event."
