On September 14, The Telegraph Ten – Mark Price, Craig Smith, Lee Hilton, Jayne Batram, Rachel Butters, Katie Gashi, Sam Wright, Aly Jobber, Emily Riseborough and Malcolm Barnard undertook the challenge of reaching the summit of Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales at more than 1,000m.
It took the team three hours to climb the mountain and two-and-a-half to descend.
The money has now been collected and a total of £3,146.37 was raised for the British Heart Foundation in David's memory.
Grimsby and Scunthorpe Media Group managing director Mark Price said: "A huge thank you to everybody who supported and sponsored us.
"All the money raised from our walk will support the British Heart Foundation in its fight against heart and circulatory disease.
"Sadly, heart disease is still the UK's biggest killer, it touches us all.
"Just like David's, lives are cut short and for those living with the disease life can be frightening and hard.
"The British Heart Foundation's vital campaigning work helps to improve the lives of those living with heart disease now, and fights for a healthy heart future for everyone.
"Hopefully, we have all helped their cause by our efforts."
