Through your physical activity pledges you will be working with employees, customers/consumers and/or local communities. For each group (as applicable) please describe the specific activities or projects you have undertaken over the past year.
For example, employee incentive schemes to promote physical activity, awareness raising activities or improvements to facilites to promote active travel.
Our employees are encouraged to participate in healthy events, from using the company gym to signing up to Cyclescheme to keep fit.
We provide free quarterly health checks for any employee who would like this and also have a visiting Reflexologist.
We have a free family Play Park and picnic area onsite which is open to the general public from April until November.
Employee events have also included an 180 mile charity cycle ride to raise funds for Midlands Air Ambulance in April, a 2 mile charity walk for Sports Relief in March and a company rugby match against another local business.
We promote local events on our company Intranet which also includes sporting events.
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
For example, support for community-based physical activity programmes (such as funding, sponsorship or other promotion activity), working with local partners to engage communities is physical activity opportunities.
