Staff Step-It-Up For Local School Donation

Posted on 11th October, 2021

Almost three hundred members of staff have participated in a health and well-being challenge to increase their daily steps by at least 1,000.  Their additional steps were turned into cash credits by the company and contributed to an overall donation of £1,443 made to Calveley Primary School.

The ‘1000 Xtra Challenge’ was organised as part of the NWF Group’s 150th anniversary celebrations, Boughey’s parent company. Aimed at getting staff more active to help improve general health and well-being, particularly after the Covid-19 pandemic.

Two team members who participated in the challenge Dave Vernon and Ionela Tone visited Calveley School to officially handover the donation to Head Teacher, Mrs Ray Rudd.

Speaking about the donation, Mrs Rudd said: “The donation is a real boost to us at the start of the new school year and we’re very grateful to the team at Boughey who participated in the challenge and who chose us to be the beneficiary.

“We plan to spend the money on multi-sports outdoor play equipment which will benefit all the children who attend the school.”

The company’s HR Business Partner Mark Batch who co-ordinated the challenge said: “We were really keen to come up with some inclusive ideas to engage staff during the NWF Group’s anniversary celebrations. The ‘1000 Xtra Challenge’ proved to be really popular and, as well as helping to raise money for the school, participants were also entered into a raffle to have the chance to win a range of prizes.

“Calveley Primary School is on our doorstep and it’s great news that our funds will go towards providing outdoor play equipment, a very fitting use of our stepping-it-up donation.”
