Team Trident complete the Landaid London Towerathlon

This year Trident entered two teams into the Landaid London Towerathlon, on behalf of YMCA London, to help create new accommodation for 195 young people a year in the city of London.

This fantastic fundraising event consisted of a 10 minute cycle sprint, a race up the 977 stairs of Broadgate Tower, and to finish, an abseil off the roof. Each discipline was completed by a different member of the team.

The teams consisted of:

Team 1:

• William Sharpey – cycling
• Grant Davies – running the tower
• Colin Dunne – abseiling

Team 2:

• Tom Bird – cycling
• Matt Handley – running the tower
• Tom Bird – finishing off the abseil for a nervous Dean Catlow!

The Trident teams were amazing on the day, with team 1 finishing 3rd and team 2 a very respectable 16th. In total they competed against 60 other teams. In total £550 was raised for YMCA London.
