On Friday 18th March, Associates were invited to take a lunchtime walk in aid of Sport Relief.
Each Associate who took part was provided with a packed lunch so no-one went hungry. And, for every Associate who joined in, the company donated £2.00 to Sport Relief.
The lunchtime stroll departed from Reception and were guided on a scenic 60 minute route through Newport Pagnell, delivering Associates back to their desks refreshed and feeling slightly smug. The walk took part in two hour slots, one at 12:00 and the other at 13:00.
What a great turnout we had, despite the drizzle and the ear-freezing wind!
Our HR Director Larence commented: "BI WORLDWIDE employees took to the fresh air this lunchtime to raise money for Sport Relief. 60 people joined together for a lunchtime stroll along the River Ouzel and through Newport Pagnell town centre, raising over £200 for the charity before enjoying a healthy packed lunch.
Summary of 12:00 walk:
45 - 50 minutes | 4,600 steps | 2.5 miles
Summary of 13:00 walk:
50 minutes | 5,284 steps | 2.63 miles
On each walk each Associates burned approx. 350 calories each. Exercise, fresh air, a good cause, and lunch: all part of the BI WORLDWIDE way!
