Colleagues from across the business have been putting on their walking boots and taking part in the Bolton Hospice ‘STEPtember’ event this September. The aim was to walk 300,000 steps, around 10,000 steps a day, to raise awareness and fundraise for Bolton Hospice.
There was some friendly competition across departments and colleagues enjoyed sharing photographs of their daily steps and walks together. Many said how it had improved their mental health and wellbeing and the daily steps have now become part of their routines and a step towards a healthier lifestyle.
Fundraising was at the heart of the event and our colleagues raised an impressive £555, which was match funded by Stateside Foods to make a final total of £1055.
Thank you to all of our colleagues who took part, fundraised and donated for this cause.
