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.
