Bury St. Eds Tri Festival raises £5000.00 for SARS

Five thousand pounds has been raised for local emergency medical charity, Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) thanks to the participants of the 2nd St. Edmunds Tri Festival and the support of event sponsor, local law firm, Greene & Greene Solicitors.

 

 

The festival, held at Abbeycroft Leisure in Bury St. Edmunds, saw 261 athletes take part in a variety of events including Triathlon, Aquathlon, and Duathlon with varying distances to suit all ages and abilities.

 

Michael Batty, Senior Partner at Greene & Greene said “We were delighted to be given the opportunity of sponsoring the St Eds Tri Festival in our 125th Anniversary year in support of SARS. The charity relies entirely on voluntary donations and we are therefore thrilled that donations totalled £5000.00 following the event. We thank the organisers, Haversports who contributed £1400 to SARS and local businesses and associates that also supported the event.”

 

Ben Hall, Operations Manager at SARS said “We were extremely grateful for the support of Greene & Greene throughout the event. Without a doubt, we would not have raised such a fantastic amount without their sponsorship and promotion of the triathlon. Events like this are so important for SARS, not only do they raise vital sums to support equipment and training costs for our emergency medical volunteers but they also raise crucial awareness of our charity. Subsequent to this event, we were delighted to be able to set up a new local SARS responder to increase our coverage in the St Edmundsbury area. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who fundraised on our behalf. It was a brilliant effort by all concerned.”
