Over £99,000 raised by 950 young triathletes at Clifton College

On Sunday 5 May, 950 children from local schools came together at Clifton College to take part in the Knight Frank Schools Triathlon, the UK’s largest fundraising event for children. In teams of four, they swam, cycled and ran their hearts out and have so far raised over £99,000 for Restless Development and numerous other charities chosen by the participating schools. It is a truly inspiring story of local children supporting young leaders around the world.

This is a national series organised by global youth charity, Restless Development. This year 10,000 pupils will be taking part to raise over £1 million; which will help to support over 100 charities. Thanks to the event sponsors, Knight Frank, Bentley Motors and Neilson Holidays the much needed funds raised will go directly to charity.

This year was the third year that Clifton College has hosted the event. It is truly a community centred day, with local businesses and over 2,000 attendees coming together for a feel-good event.

Deputy Head (Co-Curriculum) Mr Mather said “It was wonderful to welcome so many young people and members of the community to The College on Sunday. For many it will have been their first attempt at a triathlon and we hope they left having had a superb experience. All the participants were enthusiastically supported by many Clifton College pupils and staff. They kindly gave up their whole Sunday to ensure the event could take place and was a great occasion – even the poor weather in the afternoon could not dampen the spirits of all involved.”
