A TEAM from the Leeds office of property firm CB Richard Ellis joined colleagues from elsewhere in the country to support Habitat for Humanity’s annual Hope Challenge.

They were aiming to raise more than £11,700 for poverty housing.

The four company teams took part in challenges such as building and living in a shelter made from recycled material for two nights, orienteering and problem solving exercises.

The Leeds team, Peak Malpractice, beat 33 other teams to win the Skyline Challenge.

Habitat for Humanity works in many countries to assist those who have lost their homes through natural disasters and rehouses people living in poor makeshift dwellings and slums.

Director of valuation and advisory services for CBRE’s Leeds office, Michael Porter, said: “The Hope Challenge is one of many Habitat for Humanity projects that CB Richard Ellis sponsors and supports.”
