The building and project consultancy team at Eddisons has raised over £5,000 for the charity Leeds Mind.

The 13‐strong team, headed by director Ian Harrington, all completed the 420m swim, 24km cycle and 4.6km run in terrific  times at the Harrogate Triathlon on 11 May, after a training programme that involved lunchtime and after‐work group training sessions over several weeks.

Ian Harrington said: “It was fantastic to see everyone coming together from across our Leeds, Newcastle and Manchester offices for such a great cause. Our day jobs are all about managing detailed building and fit‐out projects for clients so this was a really different challenge.

 “Leeds Mind does terrific work in raising awareness of mental health and supporting people with mental health issues . They have strong links with employers and peer groups within the region and are a fantastic resource for those needing dedicated help’’ 

It has been particularly poignant to our team mate, colleague and friend Joseph Fitzsimmons who sadly lost his sister last year and as a result wanted to raise money for mental health awareness.

He added: “We were all proud of ourselves that we finished in such a respectable time but even prouder that we have been able to raise £5,000 for this fantastic charity. Mental health is something that we all need to think more about and the sooner we can remove the stigma that has always surrounded it the better.”
