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.
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.
Our Let's Grow programme has inspired children to get more active, supporting the development of gardening clubs and growing schemes at school.
Since the programme began in 2008 we have now provided over £20 million worth of gardening equipment and seeds to over 31,000 schools, allowing 5 million children in the UK to learn more about where food comes from and enjoy a health enhancing activity.
Please estimate the number of people that (a) participated in your community programmes:
More than 5 million school children enaged
