The two staff teams who competed in last weekend’s Jenson Button Triathlon have smashed their fundraising target of £500 and have now reached £750. The teams pictured below include (left to right) M. Hilton, T. Burrell, D.Reddington, L.Winter, V.Austin and G.Jackson. All the money raised goes directly to the Barnardos children’s charity, if you would like to donate please click on the link below which will take you to our Just Giving page.

The two teams competed in the Team Challenge competing one leg each (swim, cycle, run) and following their successful mid morning race they chose  to enter the Men’s Super Sprint (double distance) final at 2:30pm. Amazingly after 1 hour and 12 minutes competition the team teams finished only a minute apart! This underlined an impressive result given none of the team members had competed in a triathlon before.
