Staff at a Woodford Green hotel raised over £1000 for a children's charity
Hotel staff took part in a physical challenge to raise money for a children's charity.
Ten employees at the County Hotel in Oak Hill, Woodford Green, rasied £1000 after completing a 140-mile triathlon on January 28.
The 'Ironman Triathlon', as referred to by staff, consisted of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 bicycle ride and a 26.2 mile marathon run.
The event took place at the Life@Whitehouse leisure club in Telford.
Money was raised for Nottignham-based charity 'When You Wish Upon a Star', which aims to grant wishes to children suffering from life-threatening conditions.
This is second year the hotel has taken part in a challenge to raise money for the charity and has raised £5,000 in total to date.
General manager, Sara Chegwidden of the Woodford Green hotel said:
"We are proud to support When You Wish Upon a Star, and want to thank all of the team involved for their dedication and effort."
