Bury Tri Festival set to raise vital funds for Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS)

 

On Sunday 29th April, 330 athletes will take part in the 2nd Bury St. Edmunds Triathlon Festival held in support of voluntary emergency medical charity, Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) and sponsored by local law firm, Greene & Greene Solicitors.

 

 

The festival, being held at Abbeycroft Leisure in Bury St. Edmunds and organised by HaverSports, will see athletes take part in a variety of events including Triathlon, Aquathlon, and Duathlon with varying distances designed to suit all ages and abilities.

 

Michael Batty, senior partner at Greene & Greene Solicitors, said “We support many local events, charities and community groups and are delighted to be sponsoring the Bury Tri Festival in our 125th Anniversary year. SARS is an incredible charity, which depends on voluntary fundraising and donations in order to help treat patients at the scenes of serious incidents throughout Suffolk and its neighbouring counties.”

 

Since 1972, specialist medics from SARS have voluntarily attended thousands of critically ill and injured patients in and around Suffolk and helped save countless lives. SARS responders carry drugs and equipment not found on frontline ambulances and can carry out specialist procedures at an incident scene, which would not normally be possible outside a hospital environment. Sue Roots, Fundraising Officer for SARS said, “Our charity relies on donations to fund the equipment and training which enables our clinicians to provide the best possible level of prehospital care to the patients they treat. The awareness that this event has generated has been brilliant and the funds raised will help us tremendously. We wish everyone a successful day and thank them wholeheartedly for their support.”

 

The organisers, SARS and Greene & Greene have praised the other businesses that have shown their support for this event, including: Bury Developments, Winfresh (UK) Ltd and official hydration partners – iPro Sport.

 

Sophie Christy, Commerical Director for iPro Sport commented, "We are delighted to be partnering with the 2018 St. Eds' Tri - The Greene & Greene Triathlon Festival supporting participants entered into all three disciplines (Triathlon, Aquathlon and Duathlon) with water and iPro Sport - a quality, low sugar, and fast rehydration sports drink. We were also keen to be involved to help further support the fantastic work of SARS - whose doctors and paramedics volunteer in their spare time to respond to emergency calls and who are often the first on the scene. We wish everyone involved the very best of luck and we hope that the event raises awareness and much needed funds for SARS!"

 

The Bury Tri Festival promises to be a great day out for the whole family and will also include demonstrations by the SARS team, specialist Bury St. Edmunds bike shop, Revel Outdoors and food and drink stalls to whet your appetite.
