Issue 310 – These boots were made for running!

Frome-based boss Nick Sinfield has recently completed his second triathlon raising a huge £1,020 for charity.

The event took place on Sunday 12th September at Bowleaze Cove in Weymouth and followed the traditional triathlon form of a 1.5km swim, a 40 km bike ride and a 10km run. Nick Sinfield was placed 130 overall in the race and finished with a time of 3hr 18min 38sec, beating his previous triathlon time by over 3 minutes.
Nick Sinfield is the Managing Director of DUO, the footwear company based on the Vallis Trading Estate.
He said, “The triathlon wasn’t easy and this one was a real personal challenge as I was determined to beat my previous race time!
“DUO are delighted to support such an incredible charity – the amazing team effort that everyone has shown, has meant that so far this year DUO have raised a massive £3000 for Winston’s Wish!! That means that three children will be able to take advantage of Winston Wish’s support network following the loss of a parent. This gives substantial immediate benefits for them now and a big chance to prevent associated problems later in life.
“The effort everyone has put in has been considerable but the results are truly fantastic – I’m so proud of everyone!”
DUO have been very busy recently taking part in events to raise money for the company’s nominated charity Winston’s Wish, the UK’s leading child bereavement charity. As well as the money raised by the triathlon, staff and friends have recently run the Bristol half-marathon and taken part in a skydive.
