2020 STEPS CHALLENGE GETS UNDERWAY

Tuesday 13 October 2020
2020 STEPS CHALLENGE GETS UNDERWAY

For the four weeks leading up to the end of British Summer Time (BST) our staff have committed to put their best foot forward and take part in the 2020 Alex Picot Trust Steps Challenge.

 

 

 

The office has been split into two teams to go head-to-head recording their daily steps and helping us raise funds for The Stroke Association.

Newly appointed Directors of Alex Picot Trust, Hannah Roynon-Jones and Sarah McBrearty are heading up the teams. 

Hannah said:

"Following the success of the steps challenges we have carried out in the past, the Directors decided to get our staff motivated to increase our activity levels as we head into Autumn.  This year we welcomed some new faces to the team during lockdown and now we are back in the office it is a great opportunity to bring everyone together for a good cause."

 

Sarah added:

"We are pleased to once again support The Stroke Association and generate some much needed funds for the Jersey Stroke Recovery Service.  We are delighted that Tracy O'Regan, the Charity's Fundraising and Operations Manager, has agreed to join my team and help us reach our steps total each week."
