A team from Sellafield have been named Apprentice Team of the Year, jointly with a group from Scarborough, in the 2015 Brathey Apprentice Challenge competition.
The teams from Sellafield Ltd and Dale Power Solutions both raised money for charity over the course of the year.
A total of 50 groups and 700 apprentices were involved in the competition, and they visited schools and were involved in community projects, as well as raising money.
The Sellafield team raised nearly £9,000 for North Lakes Foodbank, and also put plenty of volunteering hours in.
They came joint top with the group from Dale Power Solutions, who raised around £2,000 for St Catherine's Hospice and helped refurbish a local shelter.
