Covering Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, staff at XL Joinery reached 1,585m in height, with the aim of completing the course in just eight hours.

Buttercup Children’s Trust raises funds to support children and their families within the UK who suffer from a wide range of life hindering illnesses including leukaemia, cystic fibrosis deafness, blindness and all other serious or terminal illnesses.
