Local Company Supports Gruelling Triathlon for Charity

Engineers will swim, cycle and run to raise funds for blood cancer research

Leamington Spa, UK, 1st June 2016 – A team of engineers from a Leamington Spa high-tech company, Drive System Design (DSD), is taking part in a gruelling triathlon this weekend (4-5 June), in support of the Leukaemia and Lymphoma research charity, Bloodwise. In competition with over 7000 people, the team members will swim, cycle and run around courses laid out in the grounds of Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.

“I’m very proud of the team; their commitment, energy and passion,” said DSD’s managing director, Mark Findlay. “Everybody will be rooting for them this weekend, and hoping they raise as much as possible in donations.”

The team comprises Cara Taylor, David Kelly, Fred Hyde, Ian Westall, John Morton, Luca Martinelli, Matt Hole, Pedro Zabala, Ralph Anstis, Sam Fraser, Sam Thompson and Simon Shepherd. You can support them by donating on the website: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/dsdfundraising

“We are competing in Blenheim Palace Triathlon because we want to raise money to fight blood cancer, which affects up to 38000 people in the UK every year,” said John Morton, DSD Chief Engineer. “It’s a really important cause.”

DSD, an engineering consultancy specialising in transmissions and drivelines, located its headquarters in Leamington in order to benefit from the highly skilled local labour market. In order to support ongoing growth, the recruitment of additional staff is a continual process and Leamington, located so close to the major Midlands automotive employers, provided an ideal geographic location.
