Essential reading for retailers and suppliers in the home improvement market

Prince William's message for team Homebase

Added: 23 February 2012

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.

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