Staff at Preston-based firm Rotherham Taylor Limited are taking part in the challenge.

Chief executive Michael Barton and director Rebecca Bradshaw join staff in attempting the challenge.

Rebecca said: “We chose the Foxton Centre as our charity of the year in recognition of the real difference it makes to people locally here in Preston.

“This is set to be a very tough challenge, but it is the daily reality for many of the people that the Foxton Centre works with.

“We hope to be able to raise a good sum for the Foxton Centre.”
