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."
