Com­mu­nity sup­port

The Arran Banner - - Letters -

Sir, On be­half of the Isle of Ar­ran Ju­nior Triathlon Club, I would like to thank sin­cerely ev­ery­one for their gen­er­ous dona­tions pro­vided for our Is­land-2-Is­land event which took place on Satur­day June 2. The weather was bril­liant, and the event was a great suc­cess pro­vid­ing adults and chil­dren with the fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence a triathlon on our won­der­ful is­land. With­out the sup­port of the busi­ness com­mu­nity, this event would not have been pos­si­ble.

We would also like to thank our many helpers and vol­un­teers; the event has re­ceived so much pos­i­tive feed­back, and this would not be pos­si­ble with­out you pro­vid­ing your time. Our grat­i­tude ex­tends to the res­i­dents of the is­land who helped cheer on many triath­letes as they raced through the vil­lages. Many of our com­peti­tors are keen to visit Ar­ran again soon and this is all down to you all.

The funds raised by this is­land event will con­tinue to pro­vide a free coached com­mu­nity triathlon club for all chil­dren be­tween the ages of seven and 17. In the fu­ture we will in­vest the funds in free train­ing ses­sions and free equip­ment to all chil­dren.

Yours, Craig Wood, Isle of Ar­ran Ju­nior Triathlon Club.
