More than 80 Yorkshire Building Society workers from Leeds braved a mammoth physical challenge to raise vital charity cash.

Colleagues from the Broad Gate branch leaped 80ft for the Leap The Peaks event in the Peak District before walking over nine miles.

The event helped contribute to the final total of £37,000 which YBS as a whole has raised for their charity partner, End Youth Homelessness (EYH).

EYH is a national movement to end homelessness among 16-25 year-olds in the UK. Through the partnership, YBS aims to raise £750,000 to support over 700 homeless young people into their own rented homes.
