A team of 30 staff, volunteers, unpaid carers and clients from Carers’ Resource braved the blizzards to take part in the Great Skipton Santa Fun Run on Sunday, November 28.
The charity’s team, which included a number of enthusiastic canine participants, raised more than £1,600 to support unpaid carers, with donations still coming in.
The money raised will help Carers’ Resource give emotional and practical support to unpaid carers from across Bradford, Craven and Harrogate districts.
Claire Macina, Fundraiser at Carers’ Resource, said: “We’re so grateful to everyone who took part and all those who donated and helped raise money to support unpaid carers. And a big thanks to the Rotary Club of Skipton Craven for putting on such an amazing event.
“It was an extra-special Skipton Santa Fun Run this year as the snow began falling just before the start! All our team, including wheelchair participants and a few dogs, did amazingly well to keep going through the heavy snow and reach the finish line.”
