6 Million Steps for Charity - We Did It!

We’ve got sore feet but we did it!

18 of our team here at SP Services walked a total of six million steps equalling around 3,000 miles to raise money for charity. We all put our best feet forward for BHTA Steptember 2018, a national campaign to raise funds for the Stroke Association.

In total we raised just over £700 for the campaign with each of us aiming to walk an average 10,000 steps or about five miles every day throughout September.

Our MD Simon Leggett even walked around the streets of his home town of Ruabon one evening after work to ensure he reached his daily target after a busy day at the office.

“It was tough I have to admit. But everyone really got stuck in and were determined to do their best. We are all a lot fitter and some are even carrying on with the challenge of 10,000 steps a day,” said Simon.

Unsurprisingly Stephen Heyes (21) was our “top walker” with 416,707 steps over the month. He walks many miles a day in our large warehouse complex packing and moving boxes of emergency medical equipment destined to customers across Shropshire, the UK and worldwide.

Stephen regularly walks between 11,000 and 20,000 steps every day.

Operations Director Jane Wilson was our “top stepper” from the office with 396,590 steps in September, averaging between 10,000 and up to 15,000 steps a day.

The British Healthcare Trades Association, founded in 1917, which organises the event each year, represents members who make or sell healthcare products to help people live more independently.
