29/04/13 TSS Facilities supports overseas community charity
TSS sponsored Dale West, Maintenance Manager of Ardingly College, to 7th place in the Haywards Heath Triathlon on 21st April. Having worked with Ardingly College in the past to replace their old gas boilers with new energy efficient ones, TSS sponsored £700 to buy Dale a mountain bike for the 23 kilometre-long cycling section of the competition.
Conditions were dry as Dale completed the cycling in 37 minutes and 52 seconds against 55 other competitors. He also took 4 minutes 12 seconds to complete a 500m swim. In the final section of the event, Dale ran 5 kilometres in 12 minutes and 11 seconds. This contributed to his overall time of 54 minutes 16 seconds. Astonishingly, it was his first ever event and the first of three planned triathlons over the next few months in order to raise £12,000 for his charity project.
