Rose Road Charity Update
October 17th, 2017
On 24th September, supporters of the Rose Road Association took on a Triathlon challenge to raise funds for the Hampshire based charity. Teams from Grant Thornton, EY, Wilkins Kennedy and Copyrite took part in the latest Rose Road challenge event. Sponsored by Radcliffe & Co, the event was a shorter triathlon, known as a super sprint, suitable for both experienced athletes and beginners a like.
The winning team, with three team members achieving the quickest three times, were Grant Thornton. However, the real winner of the event was the Rose Road Association, which is on track to raise £3,000. The day was organised by Bruce Elkins, Wilkins Kennedy Partner and Rose Road Association Ambassador, who himself has raised over £23,000 for the charity.
The Rose Road Association has been supporting young people with disabilities and their families for 65 years. Eleanor Deans, Corporate Fundraiser, said “we are extremely grateful to everyone that took part today for supporting the Rose Road Association. It was a fantastic day, and it was great to see the team members achieving amazing times. We rely on the support of local businesses and the community to raise the funds needed to offer our support to local families in need”.
