Triathlon festival raises more than £35,000
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.
