London Rose lends support to global child-malnutrition charity

LONDON Rose Grace Kenny took time out of her busy schedule to visit Concern Worldwide’s London office to give some encouragement to this year’s Concern London Triathlon relay team.

The event, on July 27 and 28 at London ExCel, involves a 10km run, a 40km cycle and a 1.5km swim

All proceeds raised for Concern Worldwide will go to their education and nutrition programme in Liberia where it’s estimated over a third of children under five years old are stunted due to poor nutrition.

Several corporate teams are competing on behalf of Concern Worldwide but, with only days before the deadline for registration, there are still places available. Contact [email protected] or ring 020 7801 1873.

Crawley-based Grace, whose roots are in Tullow Co. Carlow, is one of three British Roses from London, Manchester and Liverpool who were among 23 young women selected at the Rose of Tralee Regional Festival last month.

They will go forward to the televised stages of the International Festival in the Dome with host Dáithí Ó Sé later this summer.
