Staff and Volunteers of OPAl pose for triathlon training pictureLocal charity OPAL (Older People’s Action in the Locality) have entered a team of 4 Tri-stars in the Driffield Triathlon on Sunday 19th May.

OPAL volunteers Frances and Linda, Jenny the chair based exercise instructor and staff member Sally-Anne will be swimming 400 metres, followed by a 12 mile cycle and finishing with a 3 mile run. This is the first time any of the four have done a triathlon but they are well prepared for the challenge! Despite the long cold winter they have managed to keep training and are now looking forward to the event.

They are raising funds for OPAL, so if anyone would like to sponsor them there is a sponsor form in the OPAL office, Unit 10, Holt Park District Centre or donations can be made online at http://localgiving.com/opal Donations already made have been very gratefully received.

Sally-Anne said

I have been motivated to train by the thought of all the good work OPAL does and by the encouragement of fellow staff and members.
