Come and meet the Iron Man at Glee!

Iron Man Steve Morgan arrived at Glee to a warm welcome from customers as well as staff. The Managing Director of Zest 4 Leisure and his Senior Manager John Vaughan successfully completed the gruelling Iron Man Wales challenge in aid of Alzheimer’s Society.

Having conquered one of the world’s toughest distance triathlons, for the third time, which involved a 2.4 mile sea swim, a 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run, Steve immediately travelled to join his team exhibiting at Glee, the UK’s largest garden trade show!

Steve and John entered Iron Man Wales to help raise funds for their chosen charity Alzheimer’s Society. To raise money, they have also taken part in many sporting events during 2015 including, The Velothon Wales, The Ripon Triathlon and The Polish Iron Man.

John also took on a full body wax for charity to ensure his aerodynamics for the challenge.

John said, “No pain no gain, but it was worth it for such a worthy cause”. They are raising money for this worthy cause, which works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Steve explains why Alzheimer’s Society was selected as the company’s chosen charity for 2015:

“There are so many people within our society that live with this progressive and life-changing condition. We actively support charitable and community initiatives and, having known people dealing with this condition, Alzheimer’s Society was an obvious choice. Everyone within our company feels privileged to be able to help this charity in the fight against dementia. I hope my efforts at Iron Man encourage others to get involved by donating or raising funds for Alzheimer’s Society, enabling it to continue investing in its research programme and providing essential support and resources.”

Ruth Owen, Community Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society said:  “We are delighted that Steve and John from Zest 4 Leisure continue to give their time and energy to support Alzheimer’s Society. “225,000 people will develop dementia this year, that’s one every three minutes.

"As a charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals like Steve and John to help us continue our vital work.  Both Steve and John have been cycling, swimming and running hundreds of miles in aid of Alzheimer’s Society over the past two years and have been wonderful supporters having raised thousands of pounds for our charity. 

"Not only have they taken part in these gruelling Iron Man events, they have also supported our local services by hosting a Try Something New gardening project. Thank you to Steve and John for their fundraising efforts, helping Alzheimer's Society to continue leading the fight against dementia.”
