FIREFIGHTERS from Skelmanthorpe completed a gruelling climb which saw them go up and down a ladder 9,167 times.
Retained crew members tackled the 24-hour sponsored ladder climb on Friday and Saturday - and raised more than £2,000 for a children's charity, the Make-A-Wish Foundation .
The charity grants wishes for children aged between three and 18 who are battling life-threatening illnesses.
The 10 firefighters started their challenge at 3.15pm on Friday.
They then went up a 10-metre ladder outside Wakefield Cathedral 9,167 times in 24 hours.
Each of the firefighters climbed a total of 30,000ft - the equivalent of going up Mount Everest, the world's highest peak at 29,035 feet.
Together, the firefighters climbed 91.44 kilometres, falling short of the world record of 105 kilometres.
This record is held by a team of firefighters in New Zealand.
Skelmanthorpe Watch Manager Richard Meakin said he and his team were exhausted but happy with their performance.
He said: "We fell just short of the world record. But that would have been a bonus really."
