Together colleagues are good sports for charity.

01 Aug 2016 | 2 min

Colleagues at Together have been busy taking part in various industry sporting events this summer which have helped raise money for several charities.

Eight of our football fanatic colleagues recently took part in the Financial Services Cup 2016. The 6-a-side football tournament in Birmingham saw dozens of teams across the financial services industry play against each other for the coveted title.

The tournament raised money for WellChild, a national charity which helps children and young people who have complex health conditions, and the Together team made it all the way to the quarter finals. As one of 60 teams to compete, we think that’s pretty good going!

As well as battling it out in a football tournament, Together colleagues have been demonstrating their endurance in a monster triathlon; the JLL Property Triathlon North, which took place last week at MediaCity UK in Salford Quays.

Open to those in the property industry, the triathlon saw nearly 900 people competing against each other, and included a 750m swim, an 18km bike ride, and a 5km run.

Six Together colleagues competed in the triathlon and all finished in under 1 hour and 32 minutes.

"It was really tough, both physically and mentally, but seeing the property community in the North coming together was very special and we were proud to be a part of it.” - Daniel Owen Parr Together's National Development Director.

The event raised funds for The Christie and Starlight Children’s Foundation, which provides fun and entertainment for terminally ill children in hospitals across the UK.

This all comes soon after a group colleagues tackled the National Three Peaks challenge, climbing the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in just 24 hours, raising over £15k for local charity St Ann’s Hospice.

It’s fair to say, we have some very determined colleagues, and we’re really proud of all they’ve achieved.
