FIREFIGHTERS from Skelmanthorpe are aiming to break a world record - on a ladder.
The part-timers aim to break the 24-hour ladder-climbing record, which now stands at 65 miles.
To do this the firefighters have to go up the 30ft ladder 460 times an hour.
The event will raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, a charity which grants wishes to children living with life-threatening illnesses.
The ladder-climb will be on Friday and Saturday, April 21 and 22, outside Wakefield Cathedral.
Now the firefighters are looking for sponsors to help them in their mammoth task.
Watch Manager Richard Meakin said: "The crew would love to hear from companies interested in sponsoring the event in any way or people who would like to come along and support us."
Make-A-Wish's manager for northern England, Francesca Towson, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for the local community to come along and give support to a super group of fundraisers and help raise cash to grant more wishes in the region."
Make-A-Wish has granted 3,500 wishes since it began in 1986.
Anyone who would like to get involved and sponsor or provide T-shirts or refreshments should call Mr Meakin on 0771 3002245.
