Champion fundraiser Michael Barlow raised £690 for the Southport and Ormskirk hospitals’ paediatric diabetes charity.
Michael, 38, took part in the Chester Triathlon in September. A keen cyclist, he competed in the half-triathlon competition, training for 14 weeks.
The event was made up of a 500-metre swim, a 21km bike ride and a 5km run which he completed in two hours eight minutes.
Michael, from Skelmersdale, raises money for a different charity each year. He was inspired to fundraise for the diabetes fund by the child of a family friend who is a patient at Ormskirk hospital.
Dr May Ng, Consultant Paediatric Endocrinologist, said:
“The team was delighted to receive Michael’s generous donation and I want to thank everyone who sponsored him.”
She said the money would go towards essential learning and teaching materials for patients, and for the team to hold regular evening education sessions for families and children with diabetes.
