We have formed a Sports and Social Club to promote leisure activity amongst our staff.We provide funding towards the cost of hiring 5- A- Side football pitches for employees who now play once a week on average. We signed up this year to the Global Corporate Challenge via Get The World Moving.com, which encourages employees to take 10,000 steps a day and record their individual and team achievements over several months on a worldwide website; around 80 employees have taken part, with many more throughout the Wm Grant and Sons Company. We have agreed to sponsor a local football team in the Basingstoke League, and as a result we have organised a friendly match against them; following the success of this initiative we are actively looking for additional fixtures. We also arrange to play against our colleagues in our parent organisation, via cricket matches and football tournaments, normally on an annual basis.
