Team Sponsorship

As you may know we’re sponsoring Team “Kelly Iz Swift” for their up and coming (this weekend) Wight Challenge. We asked them to do us a quick run down of what they’ve been up to and what they’ll be doing during the challenge…

” On Saturday 20th September 2014, Jamie Kelly, Samantha Tyler and Stephen Swift will be embarking on a challenge to complete a 20 mile off road cycle, a 3 mile canoe and 8 mile run.  This is a team event taking place on the Isle of Wight, the challenge is called the Wight Challenge.

Back in March, Steve came into the office where all three of the team worked and asked who would be up for a bit of a fun event in September, ‘It might be a bit hard.’ he said, straight away Jamie and Sam volunteered and around their various shifts started training for it, cycling in the water soaked countryside of Hampshire following the horrific winter of 2014!  What seems like such a long time has passed and the event is upon them all.

Jamie and Sam completed a triathlon this year and continue to train for events later in the year, including Tough Mudder and the Great South Run.  Steve, only last weekend, cycled the length and breadth of Hampshire to promote the Volunteer Police Cadets he has set up within the county.  Despite all of this preparation, the team feel both excited and nervous, not least because Sam’s preparation has been ‘hindered’ by a two week all inclusive Honeymoon in Mexico!  It would also be fair to say that Steve’s description of a fun event has been doubted along the way!

On Friday, the trio will depart from the Southampton area to the Isle of Wight.  They will try and keep everyone updated as to their progress as they go.  However if you would like to see what they will be up against (including the route) please visit:
