The Croyde Ocean Triathlon is raising money for North Devon District Hospital’s Seamoor unit.

Organisers of Croyde Ocean Triathlon have pledged their support to North Devon District Hospital’s Seamoor unit with a charity raffle.

The top prize will be an electric bicycle and servicing worth £1,500.

The bicycle has been donated by Roundswell Hyundai, who are sponsoring the triathlon.

Michael Morris, director of the triathlon said: “We hope to be able to raise £3000 through this raffle.

“It’s just one of the things we are doing to help raise money for the Seamoor Unit.”

Tickets for the raffle can be bought at the hospital, as well as at Roundswell Hyundai and Croyde Post Office.

The triathlon takes place on July 3.

Competitors will swim 1500m in the ocean along Putsborough beach before a 40km cycle.

The event ends with a 12km run promising fabulous views of Putsborough, Saunton and Croyde.

You can also donate to the Seamoor unit when signing up for the triathlon.
