Volunteer’s triathlon goes swimmingly!

A huge pat on the back goes to Crimestoppers volunteer, Jo Osborn, who tackled cold winds and heavy rain in order to complete a triathlon to raise money for Sussex Crimestoppers. Months of vigorous training paid off for the charity’s volunteer, who swam, cycled and ran in the notoriously difficult event.

Jo was put through her paces as she launched into the 750m swim before heading into the 20km cycle ride and finally combating the 5km run as part of the triathlon at Dorney Lake, Berkshire. Though tackling those
bad guys keeps me trim, I know even I would struggle to finish this feat of endurance…and I dread to think what it would do to my usually pristine appearance!

Before her success in the triathlon, Jo, from Hove, had kindly been donating her time to Crimestoppers as she decided to help the charity in their ongoing campaign against bogus callers and particularly those who prey on the elderly and vulnerable by conning their way into people's homes before stealing from them.

It’s great to see such a tremendous effort from someone who volunteers their time to fighting crime, well done Jo!
