The three highest peaks in Wales were conquered to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).
The charity, which runs Charlton Farm in Wraxall, will benefit from almost £2,000 thanks to the efforts of 10 workers in Yatton.
Costain’s John Corlett, Billy Sheppard, Neelesh Chavan, Ben Barker, Slawomir Lesniewski, Sabrina Rayfield, Manuel Benitez Sanchez, Kushagra Bhargava, James Ruffle and Martin Gillard undertook the challenge.
They climbed Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Penyfan to raise money for the charity.
The Welsh Three Peaks Challenge was completed in little more than 17 hours.

A Costain spokesman said: “The team managed to raise a total of £1,865 for CHSW to support life-limited children and their families.
“The funds will help support children who are living with a life-limiting condition which sadly means that they are not expected to reach adulthood.”
