Last Sunday 8th September, Wellgate Care Ltd entered the team relay event of the 2019 Channel Triathlon in Folkestone, raising money for Pilgrims Hospices in East Kent. The team ‘Pilgrims Progress’ consisted of members Richard, Jack and Henry who each took on one leg of the Olympic distance triathlon, and were delighted to finish winners of the team event!
In perfect conditions, the event began with a 1.5km sea swim from Folkestone Harbour, followed by the 40km bike leg around Hawkinge, Densole and Paddlesworth before heading back to Folkestone for the 10km run along the waterfront towards Sandgate.
Fundraising for Pilgrims Hospices, Wellgate Care Ltd were delighted with the level of support received and have raised £4,610 at the last check, with donations continuing to come in after the event. The money raised will go towards the provision of care and support for those with life limiting illnesses across East Kent, both at home and at Pilgrims’ three therapy centres in Ashton, Canterbury and Thanet.
