Our UK team donated over £2,000 to charities in a 'Movement Challenge' as part of our 25th anniversary in the UK.

From Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh, we clocked up 82,000 minutes in our Movement Challenge. The aim was to move for as many minutes as possible through different forms of exercise, over a five week period.

Rock climbing, walking and half marathons were just some of the ways people took on the challenge. The challenge culminated in a climb up Snowdon in Wales, of the highest mountains in the UK.

"We have been celebrating our 25th anniversary in a number of different ways this year", said Director of Office Operations, Dave Elliott. "We wanted to find a way to focus on our local communities and at the same time the wellbeing of our people”.

"The engagement with the challenge has been great. It put a focus on encouraging people be more physically active, to enjoy the outdoors and appreciate how beneficial even the smallest movements can be. Raising funds for our chosen local charities too has made it the perfect celebration activity", Dave added.
