The Brentwood office of FRP Advisory, recently held its biggest-ever fundraising campaign – a charity triathlon, inviting members of the business community to take part.
The event, which attracted over 140 competitors, comprised of a 400m open-water swim, followed by a 20km bike ride and a 5km run.
“It was great to be able to support our friends at FRP Advisory in raising money for such a wonderful cause. We are a sporty bunch at Gener8 generally and so it was a pleasure to be able to enjoy some good-natured competition in great company. I was also pleasantly surprised at our team’s finishing position!” Paul Stokes. Gener8 Finance Managing Director.
The event itself was a huge success “The response was phenomenal, we couldn’t be more pleased,” said Glyn Mummery of FRP: “We set ourselves a target of raising £10,000 for Little Havens Childrens Hospice and thanks to the support of the business community and sponsors, which included Gener8 Finance Ltd, we’ve exceeded that target, reaching £14,581.09 so far.”
Our aim now is to make it a permanent fixture in the corporate calendar and from the feedback we’ve had, we know it will be bigger and better next year.”
