On Sunday 29th , a team of 15 participants set off on their Rossendale Triathlon challenge to raise funds for the refurbishment of the reception class playground at Edenfield C of E Primary school.
This is the fifth year Edenfield C of E Primary School has entered a team for the Rossendale Triathlon and their fundraising success this year replicates that of previous years. The team comprised teachers, parents and governors with the aim of raising £1,000 through sponsorship. This target was smashed with a total of £2100 raised to date.
Return participant and organiser, Simon Holland hosted a ‘survival celebration’ with his family offering bacon sandwiches and bucks fizz after the event. Simon says “The Rossendale Triathlon is a fantastic local event that allows participants a genuine challenge on their doorsteps. Whilst being a great opportunity to raise funds for Edenfield Primary School, it allows parents and their crucial sponsors, a real opportunity to support both personally and at school level. Thank you to all those who have put themselves on the line to complete the Triathlon and all those who pledged funds.”
The £2100 raised by the Triathlon Team will be added to an ongoing campaign by the PTA to raise £6,000 to complete the playground refurbishment works and further enhance the outdoor educational environment at Edenfield School.
