A TRIATHLON is one of the most physically demanding of sports but a group of schoolgirls have taken one on to raise funds for a children’s hospice.

Pictured are 14-year-olds Heather McCall, Ellie Rushforth, Alice Burdon and Alanis Miller who have all taken part in a triathlon to raise funds for Martin House Children’s Hospice, near York.

Their sporting endeavour, which saw the girls cycle six miles, swim 100 metres and walk four miles from Carnaby to Danes Dyke, is part of this year’s Humberside Police Lifestyle Challenge.

The girls, who are known as Lifestyle team OMW, have thanked Leisure World for all their support.

The girls are now busy baking in preparation for a cake stall which will be held in the Promenade.

Martin House Children’s hospice provide care and support to children with life limiting conditions and their families who rely almost entirely on voluntary donations.
