The Skipton team featured brothers Chris and Steve Pugh, and Sam Boatwright.

Events and fundraising coordinator said:

“The money will be used to give both adults and young carers the chance to escape the day-to-day stress and pressures they face looking after a family member or friend.

“It will help fund everything from short breaks to pamper days – something which we know makes a huge and positive difference to their own health and well-being.”
