We currently operate the cycle to work scheme which employees have the opportunity to sign up to annually as part of our flexible benefits scheme. We are in the process of opening this scheme up so that it can be joined at any time of year. We encourage walking, cycling and running, facilitating sponsored events in aid of a number of charities. Recently a team of staff members undertook a 650 mile sponsored cycle ride past all of our shops and then continuing on to France to raise money for the Princes Trust. Staff and members of the public were encouraged to join segments of the ride and over £8,000 was raised for the charity. Similarly another member of staff recently completed a 100 mile run over 5 consecutive days also in aid of the Princes Trust, and 9 members of staff took part in a marathon rowing event. We currently provide one shower and make available/provide other facilities as required, meeting rooms, transport etc.
