The Children’s Society have been selected as one of five children’s charities who will be working in partnership with Thistle Hotels. The hotel group has created a series of fundraising challenge events called ‘Lite@Nite’ which will raise funds to support our amazing work.
This year Lite@Nite are kicking off events with five free children’s triathlons:
3 August - Glasgow
10 August - Newcastle
18 August - Manchester
31 August - Birmingham
1 September - Bristol
If you know a young person aged between 6-12 who would love to participate visit the Lite@Nite website for more information about taking part and how you can sign up.
Ten children and their families from each 'kids triathlon' event will win an all-expenses paid (by Thistle Hotels) overnight trip to London, with a place on the final leg of the relay which will include exclusively running across the finish line at the World Triathlon Championships in Hyde Park.
Thistle Hotel employees are also taking part in a relay from each hotel in the UK starting off in Inverness and finishing in London; they will be walking, running and biking their way through the UK clocking, up an impressive 1400 miles.
