THE fifth annual Bolton team triathlon, which was organised by the Rotary Club of Bolton Daybreak, raised a total of £2,150 for local charities.

The event was sponsored by the Royal Bank of Scotland Commercial Banking who raised £642 in sponsorship with the help of a £250 award from the Bank's Community Cash-Bak Award Scheme.

In the five years that the event has been held, more than £12,000 has been raised by teams entered mainly from the local business community.
