Iron Man John Raising Funds for Young Carers









Thomson and Bancks colleague John Stagg has committed to raising funds for Gloucestershire Young Carers by facing one of the most challenging of challenges – The Weymouth Ironman Challenge.

John says: “I’m not sure why I signed up to this challenge. This time last year I had not participated in a ‘healthy event’ for some 15 years. Perhaps the sheer awesomeness and unfathomable enormity of it all blinded me to what I was agreeing to.

“Kate bears most responsibility although the idea may have come from Hannah – they both completed (easy) triathlons in 2017. That said, the day is almost here … three half-marathons, three triathlons, and a 90-mile bike sportive later and we are ready (we think) … the transformation  from desk-bound slob to finely-tuned triathlon machine is (almost) complete …  bring on the 1.2 mile sea swim … the 56 mile bike ride … and the 13.1 mile run … Currahee!”

Wow – we wish you luck John. We’re in awe and thank you for choosing Gloucestershire Young Carers.
