Triathlon joy for sight loss team

A team of people with visual impairments from Harrogate are celebrating after completing a triathlon to raise money for a sight loss charity.

The six-strong team, who all live in community housing provided by Henshaws Society For Blind People, took part in the Skipton Triathlon to support the charity.

They have been supported throughout the challenge by Henshaws Housing and Support staff and volunteers including Alastair Locke, who came up with the idea to enter a team and ran their twice weekly training sessions.

The team have been gradually building up their fitness from a basic level. It was brilliant to see everyone complete their sections of the event and to know that all their hard work had paid off.
