Farnsfield Trio take on London Triathlon

JACK, Joe and Jorge Stevenson (aged 27, 26 and 22) from Farnsfield spent months running, swimming and cycling in training for the London Triathlon 2023 to raise money for Childline. 

Childline is a free, confidential service available 24/7. Whatever their problem or worry, children can talk to a Childline counsellor over the phone, through the website or in a 121 chat. Their Mum, Anne, has been a volunteer for Childline Nottingham for nearly three years where she supports children and young people with worries and problems when they have no one else to turn to. 

Jack said: “The London Triathlon was a challenge that we all wanted to do and we chose the NSPCC as our charity of choice having been inspired by the work our mum does at Childline. I’ve met mum’s Childline volunteer friends, they’re all really lovely with everyone’s main goal being to help kids.” 

The Stevensons are a competitive family, and the brothers raced each other while also setting out to beat the sub-three-hour time set by their dad, Sean from a triathlon he completed in 2008. Joe came in first at 2 hours and 29 minutes, Jorge minutes later at 2 hours 33 minutes and Jack just under the three hour mark at 2 hours 58 minutes. 

Together, the family have raised over £1,600 for Childline and have now set a new goal of reaching £2,000.
