Triathlon fes­ti­val raises more than £35,000

The Oban Times - - News -

A TEAM of triath­letes from Ar­gyll and the High­lands helped to raise more than £ 35,000 at the Scot­tish Sea Farms Triathlon Fes­ti­val at Stir­ling Univer­sity at the end of last month.

Teams of Scot­tish Sea Farms’ em­ploy­ees, cus­tomers and sup­pli­ers from Shet­land, Orkney, and Ar­gyll and the High­lands, all took part, hav­ing trained for months prior to the event.

SSF em­ploy­ees se­lected the char­i­ties that would ben­e­fit from the £ 35,000. They in­clude the Beat­son can­cer char­ity, Glas­gow chil­dren’s hos­pi­tal, Can­cer Re­search UK, Brain Tu­mour Re­search, Sa­mar­i­tans Scot­land and the UK Sep­sis Trust.

The idea for the fes­ti­val came about as staff wanted to train to­gether and en­ter an event suit­able for all lev­els so they de­vised a triathlon fes­ti­val, which would be open to all em­ploy­ees, cus­tomers and sup­pli­ers.
