The Best of Wimbledon and Merton featured business, Anderson Food Hygiene is to take part in the Virgin London Triathlon this summer.

The mammoth task involves a 750m swim, 20km bike ride and a 5k run at the Excel Centre, London on the 27th July.

Sylvia Anderson is raising money for the British Heart foundation, in memory of her little sister who passed away from a heart and lung disease.

Business owner, Sylvia Anderson says: "I really want to raise awareness and funds for this fantastic charity which is very close to my heart. Heart disease touches all of us, every year thousands die prematurely, and those who survive find life difficult and frightening."

  • Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer
  • Around 2.7 million people in the UK live with heart disease

As a charity they rely on donations to continue their vital work into pioneering research, vital preventions activity and ensuring quality care and support for everyone living with heart disease.

"I have never completed a triathlon, since January I have been training 6 days a week to be mentally and physically up for this challenge, I train first thing or last thing at night between working full time and bringing up my 4 year old twins, its been full on and hard work but if I can make a difference to someone’s life then it’s all for a good cause and worth it." Sylvia added.
