rowingPlymouth to Roscoff Rowing Event- for Charity

On the13th of December, we set about the challenge of rowing the distance from Roscoff to Plymouth in a faster time then the crossing for the ferry – 185km in 6 hours and 10 minutes. After 5 hours 54 minutes and 50 seconds of testosterone- and adrenalinfilled exertion, we were done, successfully beating the ferry by 15 minutes and 10 seconds.

Team building/helping the community

In September last year a small team from Tulip helped transform one of our local Primary School’s overgrown garden into a vegetable patch.

 

Smoking

Those who smoke six cigarettes a day or more have a 34% higher incidence of being absent than non-smokers and a 10% higher incidence of being absent for longer.

Success Story

My name is Tony King and I'm part of the Maintenance Team at YMCA Cornwall.  When I first started working here, I spotted the Cycle to Work Scheme on a poster so I thought I would enquire about it.

It's very easy to set up; you can get up to £1000 which covers the cost of the bike, a lock, helmet and lights.  All you had to do was go to the bike shop and choose your bike.

Since getting my bike, I've now been cycling for the past 18 months from Hayle (to Penzance) which is 11 miles.  I feel fitter, I've lost weight and it has got me into cycling having been cycling in France and Belgium.  Next year I'm going cycling in Holland.

All in all, it's a good scheme and I would highly recommend it.
