90 year-old Burnham-On-Sea triathlete raises over £1,000 for charity

A sporty Burnham-On-Sea pensioner has this week handed over more than £1,000 to charity, having completed two fundraising triathlons.

90 year-old Arthur Gilbert presented £1,085 to The Musgrove Leukaemia Group - after collecting the money from sponsors following Burnham's April and June triathlons.

Maureen Hudson, who is the charity's Bridgwater representative, accepted the cheques and told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We are hugely grateful to Arthur for his incredible fundraising."

We reported here in April that Arthur had completed Burnham's triathlon - comprising a 250m swim, followed by a 10km bike ride and a 2.5km run - in a time of one hour, 20 minutes and nine seconds.
