LANCASHIRE house builder Barratt Developments has raised £100,000 for the Outward Bound Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support.

The firm’s employees from around the North West joined forces for their second annual walking challenge.

This year the hike was conducted virtually in order to abide by social distancing regulations.

Managing director Robert Holbrook said: “Their dedication to taking on the virtual challenge has resulted in an incredible amount of money being raised for each charity, and we know this donation will support them in continuing their important work.”
