Open Water swim fees donated to 1st Newent Scout Group

At the suggestion of the kind landowners who let us use their lake for swimming we were delighted to make a donation to 1st Newent Scout Group today from our open water swim contributions – hope the youngsters put it to good use!

TTG make donation to Midlands Air Ambulance charity

Many of our followers will recall that the club donates a portion of the annual race profits to charity; this year the chosen charity is the Midlands Air Ambulance. This has particular significance as it was the Air Ambulance and crew that were pivotal in looking after John Holland when he had a dreadful crash whilst out on a group ride nearly three years ago.
Fittingly on Saturday John led a Tri Team Glos group ride to the Midlands Air Ambulance base at Strensham where we were able to hand over the donation to the wonderful crew of the MAA.
