Following the success of last years Lancashire cycle challenge, where staff were asked to get on their bikes and record miles over a two week period, Taylor Patterson have decided to go a little further and create its own long distance challenge.
Staff each week are asked to go “the extra mile” and take part in either a walking or running activity, and their miles will be combined together to calculate the virtual trip across the world to Australia.
Staff have risen to the challenge with an array of activities from running 10k events and training for a marathon to something as simple as parking further from the office and walking a mile each morning and evening.
Louise Potter, Director commented “ We really have a motivated team at Taylor Patterson who are up for a challenge, and I’ve been amazed by the enthusiasm and effort people are putting in to help us achieve our goal.”
To keep everyone’s spirits high on this 12,000 mile journey, social events have been planned throughout the year, with the first stop being at a local Italian restaurant to celebrate reaching Rome. As the trip continues more social events will be planned to coincide with the countries we visit such as Dubai, India, Thailand and Vietnam.
This is all part of Taylor Patterson’s plan to help promote and support all our employees enjoy a healthier lifestyle. Taylor Patterson will shortly be installing showers and bike racks at their offices in Preston as a further stage of this initiative.
