Finish your first Olympic triathlon in two and half hours ? Raise over £700 for TCV? No problem for Toby!
Toby Pickard (pictured) took part in the London Triathlon last month to raise funds for TCV and help people reclaim their local green spaces. Picking up an impressive finish time for a first attempt, Toby said ‘ I actually enjoyed the experience, even considering I got kicked in the face during the swim! I chose to raise money for TCV (The Conservation Volunteers) because I think we often undervalue our natural environment, and it gives a lot to us. You may not know this but a recent government study stated that the health benefits of living with a view of a green space is worth up to £300 per person per year, through reduced stress, better air quality etc.’
We want to say a massive thank you to Toby for taken part in this incredible challenge.
