04 Apr Chelmsford Super Volunteer To Take Part In First Triathlon
A ‘super volunteer,’ from Chelmsford in Essex, is marking her 25th year of volunteering for national disability charity, Sense, by taking part in her first triathlon, to raise money to support people who are deafblind and have complex needs.
For a quarter of a century, Jen Laver, now aged 44, has volunteered on Sense run holidays, supporting children and adults with sensory impairments and complex needs to enjoy fun activities away from home, while providing vital respite for parents.
Jen is marking the anniversary by participating in the Thorpe Park Triathlon in July, raising money for the charity that she has supported for so long.
Jen, who has already raised over £200, said:
“I wanted to mark 25 years of volunteering by doing something new and exciting that would benefit Sense and help the charity continue its vital work.
The triathlon will be tough challenge, but knowing that I’m helping raise funds for a charity which has such a positive effect on people who would otherwise be tremendously disadvantaged, and has also had an incredibly positive impact on mine, is the ultimate motivation. I hope to cross the finish line having raised as much money as possible.”
