The trust ran a pedometer challenge for one week during October. This involved individuals making pledges to contribute to a total challenge to walk the distance of Lands End to John O'Groats. Individuals were issued with a pedometre, prizes were awarded to individuals that had taken the most steps and also to those who exceeded their personal pledge the most. This activity was targeted at all staff in the trust.We are planning to run a further event in early 2012 which will challenge staff to step the distance of the Great Wall of China.We have implemented a sustainability plan which provides details of trust schemes to encourage sustainable travel for example launch of the cycle to work scheme, walking route information etc. we have also established a weekly running club.
