On 22 September, sixty brave employees from Carpmaels & Ransford will be taking part in the Virgin Active London Triathlon. Dividing into twenty teams of three, the triathletes will be running, swimming and cycling their way to a target of £10,000 for The National Brain Appeal. Richard Jackson, managing partner, tells us more about why so many members of staff are swapping their suits for lycra and taking up such a serious physical challenge.

“I am delighted that there has been such enthusiasm within the firm for taking up the challenge of the London Triathlon. Nearly all members of our office are involved in one way or another. Teamwork is essential to the work we do for our clients and we will all be working together in the saddle, on the road and in the Thames on Saturday 22nd September.

When we decided to participate in this year’s Virgin Active Triathlon, we were keen to support a local charity. Staff voted for The National Brain Appeal and we are very proud to be supporting them and the excellent work they do.”
