A man from Studley has raised hundreds of pounds for local causes by completing a gruelling 100-mile triathlon in seven days. 

Chris Hall, who works for guest services at event organiser Studley Castle, took on the huge physical challenge from Monday, January 15 to Sunday, January 21 and managed to reach 121 miles in total. 

Mr Hall did 15 miles a day of swimming, running and biking with the final day seeing him complete an Olympic triathlon distance made up of a 1.5k swim, 10k run and 40k bike ride. 

He managed to raise a total of £1,210 to be split amongst local organisations including Macmillan, Arden Food Bank, Studley Sports and Social Club, the Methodist Church, Aunty Jens and Nosh and Nags.

Mr Hall said: "Each organisation is trying to obtain sponsorship or donations and they will keep whatever is raised for themselves to use to the benefit of the local community. 

"The fundraiser was to help local organisations to fund local projects and to help Macmillan which is Warner Leisure charity.

"The event was good fun and we are very grateful to everyone who donated especially our guests." 

As well as raising money for the organisations, Arden Food Bank also received 13 food boxes with essential provisions to support struggling families in the area. 

Mr Hall added: "Every £1 counts and every tin of beans makes a difference and has an impact on people's lives."
