Terrific Triathlon support at Ripon Tri Weekend

Terrific Triathlon support at Ripon Tri Weekend

The organisers of Ripon Triathlon are proud supporters of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and encourage us to manage the parking, which in turn, brings in some very generous donations for the charity. A special thanks to Andy (The Malton Scouts) and his team too – they really helped over the weekend and we are very grateful to them.

Over the two days we raised a fantastic £2,637.09 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

It was hard work, especially in the sun (and the wind!) so thank you so very much to all the volunteers involved and thank you to the organisers, competitors and spectators at the event for their generosity. Community support like this is vital to raise the £12,000 needed each day to maintain the helicopters and continue to save lives.

We would like to share our sincere thanks to NYP Tri Club for giving us such a brilliant fundraising opportunity over the weekend. To date, over the years at the Ripon Triathlon weekend we have now raised £17,350.96 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Thank you so much for your loyal support.
