Eddisons’ famous five take on triathlon for Yorkshire Air Ambulance

 

A five-strong team of intrepid colleagues from property consultant Eddisons competed in the Brownlee Triathlon at Harewood House on 24 September to raise £850 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Ian Harrington, Joseph Fitzsimmons, Jack Cooper, Chris Nettleton and Glenn Levison all took part in the Super Sprint event which saw the team swim 400m and cycle 13km before a final 3km run.

Ian Harrington, head of building and project consultancy at Eddisons, said: “We’d all been in training to prepare for this although I think it’s fair to say that some of us were in slightly better shape than others!”

He added: “The main thing is that we raise as much money as we can to support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, which provides such a vital service. They are completely funded by charitable donations and need over £4m a year to keep their two ambulances in operation, so if we can help towards achieving that total then all our efforts will have been well worth it.”

The Eddisons triathlon team has raised £850 so far with a target of £2,500. To sponsor them, go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Eddisons-Building-and-Project-Consultancy
