A team from ASK Italian at intu Chapelfield took part in the company’s Summer Triathlon for charity on July 10th, held at Dorney Lake in Berkshire – the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games venue, competing against restaurant teams from across the country. Following the event, ASK Italian has now raised over £500,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
Steve Holmes, ASK Italian’s Managing Director, said: “I have to congratulate all the participants, I know exactly how exhausting the hours of training were, never mind completing the event itself – but I’m delighted that thanks to everyone’s fantastic efforts, we’re now over half way towards our goal of raising £1 million towards a new surgery centre at the hospital, which treats very sick children from across the UK.”
Donal MacIntyre was on-hand to help the athletes with their warm-up and fire the starting gun for the three events – a Team Spring triathlon, Individual Sprint triathlon and Individual Novice triathlon - with Chris Hollins handing out the prizes and joining in with the BBQ which rounded off the day.
Restaurant General Manager Charlie Ashwell commented: ‘The triathlon was exhausting but fun, and whilst we didn’t win, we did Norwich proud. We’d like to thank all our generous family, friends and customers who helped us raise a significant amount of money for a very good cause’.
Katie Jones a waiter within the Norwich branch came a highly commendable 2nd place in the Individual Novice competition beating over 55 other competitors. She trained hard and her focus paid off on the day for Team Norwich.
