Cycling for Health

Date: 23 Jul 2013

New Cycling for Health Project!

 

The Health Promotion Service is working with the charity Sustrans to deliver a joint health and wellbeing strategy through a new programme of health rides around Cornwall.  The project will build on the successes of Mobilise! and Pedal Back the Years.  Becky Payne, Project Officer, will be recruiting and training new volunteers to lead rides to encourage people to get active.  Being part of a group ride encourages people to exercise, socialise, explore and build confidence to travel actively.  Cycling is great for physical and mental health, helping the environment, saving money and meeting new people so get on your bike and get involved!

 

For more information about rides or to have a chat about becoming a volunteer contact Becky Payne rebecca.payne@sustrans.org.uk 07557 755599

Employee Feedback

"As a company BT puts the Health and Wellbeing of its employees extremely high on its list of priorities and at the Consumer Sales Call Centre in Truro we’re very pleased that our work in this area has been recognised by a gold award.  Initiatives that we’ve spearheaded as a result of our involvement in the scheme have included workshops to encourage healthy eating and stopping smoking as well as promoting the use of our on-site gym.   Working towards and achieving the Healthy Workplace Gold Award has been an extremely rewarding process.  The assessment process has provided us with a framework to recognise the actions and activities that are already in place as well as to identify areas in which additional activity could take place"- Tracey Camps, BT Consumer Sales Truro.
