A team of intrepid walkers from Park Garage Group (PGG) have raised 6,000 with a sponsored climb up Ben Nevis.

The group included Sunil Tandon, PGG managing director, and CEO Balraj Tandon as well as two managers from the Croydon-based retailer.

Other climbers joined the group from oil companies Total UK and ConocoPhillips.

It took the walkers eight hours to complete the climb to the summit and back on September 18. Luckily they were blessed with great weather.

Sunil said: "Apparently only one day in ten has good weather there, but it was a brilliant day. And the bonding was fantastic. We enjoyed it so much we're planning another one for next year in the Alps."

The group raised money for two charities: The Friends of Baale Mane, an Indian charity for young girls, and CLIC, a children's cancer charity.
