Additional Info

The joint presentation by the Rotary clubs of Bolton, Bolton Daybreak, Bolton Lever, Horwich and Radcliffe to Bill Smethurst representing Help for Heroes was carried out at a Gala Dinner organised by RC Bolton Lever.

The funds were raised by TEAM ROTARY entrants taking part in Ironman UK through Rotary Charity Fundraisers. The cheque for 10,000 was presented to Help for Heroes jointly by five of the Rotary clubs who carried out marshalling and stewarding duties at Ironman UK and Ironkid UK.

Bolton Councillor John Byrne was the guest speaker and spoke about the importance to Bolton of events like Ironman. He praised Rotary for their involvement and the athletes for their hard work in training and completing Ironman whilst at the same time raising thousands of pounds for charity.

To conclude the evening Bill Smethurst gave a presentation on the work carried out by Help for Heroes.
