Sporting Challenge completed…….

The Sporting Challenge has now completed….thanks to everyone who participated.  We had a range of fun and competitive events but what was the purpose?  Well, to my mind twofold….

  1. I wanted to devise a range of events which would hopefully  appeal to everyone, whatever your ability or time constraints.
  2. To encourage health, fitness and well being in the workplace.  We are all guilty of a pretty sedentary life style and it is proven the activity creates greater productivity and overall mental and physical well being.  It has been great to see both individuals and companies really embrace these activities .

Here are a selection of the events undertaken…..
