Oracle Finance splashes the cash for triathlete

Knaresbough-based Oracle Finance is used to funding some of the most luxurious sports cars in the world – but now the firm has turned its attention on an altogether different sporting proposition. 

The luxury finance firm has recently donated £7,000 to the F&I Foundation which helps supports British triathlete Jessica Learmouth 26, from Leeds. 

“This money will go a long way towards the expenses I clock up on events around the world,” said Learmouth. “I’m very grateful for this donation.” 

Learmouth finished first female in the Clumber Duathlon, Nottinghamshire, in March and secured a podium position at La Rochelle, France, finishing third.

Oracle Finance managing director Peter Brook said: “We are over the moon to be able to help athletes like Jessica with donations likes this. Talented youngsters like her make Britain great and it makes a nice change for us to be funding sports, rather than sports cars!”

The money donated by Oracle Finance was part of a special fundraising event that raised an impressive £20,000 in total for young athletes.
