Gareth Thomas MP Raises Over £1500 for Harrow Charity

gareth_thomas_headshotLocal MP for Harrow West Gareth Thomas completed the last of his three triathlons on Saturday 6th July. The South Coast Triathlon saw him swim 1500 metres in the sea, cycle 40 kilometres and run 10 kilometres. He completed the challenge in 3 hours, 37 minutes and 32 seconds.

The South Coast Triathlon was the third triathlon he had taken part in having also completed the Hatch End triathlon and the Blenheim Palace triathlon in recent weeks. Gareth has so far raised over £1,500 for Harrow’s Parkinson’s UK branch, easily reaching and passing his original target of £1,000.

Gareth has been grateful for 55 separate donations from friends and colleagues but his donation page https://www.justgiving.com/Gareth-ThomasMP/ will continue to accept donations for a few more weeks for those who haven’t yet had a chance to donate.

Gareth Thomas MP said: “I’m delighted to have completed all three triathlons, it’s been a tough challenge but one that I’ve really enjoyed. I’m really pleased to have raised over £1,500 for Parkinson’s UK’s Harrow branch, they are a great organisation who do such valuable work.”

    Well done Gareth, that takes a lot of guts, stamina and determination for a very worthy cause.
