Trio triumph in triathlon
Broxtowe Women’s project would like to say a huge well done to the two members of staff and the Trustee who successfully completed a sprint triathlon and an even bigger thank you to those who sponsored them.
Over £1000 was raised, a staggering amount for a small charity that depends very heavily on donations to do its work.
Staff members Sarah Dagley and Hannah Albis and Trustee Sarah Hartshorne signed up for the event which saw them swim 400m, do a 20km bike ride and a 5km run.
They all crossed the finishing line in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire in very respectable times and feeling uplifted by the tremendous support they received.
Sarah Dagley, Business and Fundraising Manager for BWP, said: “Despite being ill leading up to the event I was determined to complete the event. What some women go through on a daily basis drove that determination.
“It was a great experience and honour to be raising money for a cause I am so passionate about, can’t wait for the next one!”
Hannah added: “It was challenging but such great fun and knowing how much the funds will help women really pushed me on during the race.”
The donation portal is open until October 22; to add to the wonderful £1095 already raised, please go to the just giving page at https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/bwptri
