We have challenged our staff to collectively walk, run or cycle 1000 km by the end of May to raise money for the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal.
For each kilometre completed up to the 1000km target, Gibbs Denley will donate £1 to this excellent appeal.
24 Gibbs Denley staff are participating in the challenge by walking, running and cycling (outside and on the treadmill).
The challenge began on Thursday 7th May.
Four days later, we had achieved 348 km towards the target – and by the 14th May we had reached 656.77 km!
On 18th May we completed the 1000 km!
We have now exceeded our 1000 km target considerably, and the total on 22nd May reached 1,690.86 km!
Nearly 1000 km was achieved through cycling alone.
We have decided to keep going until the end of the month to see if we can reach 2000 km – or even more!
We have set up a ‘Just Giving’ fundraising page, and hope to raise more money to add to the £1,000 donation from Gibbs Denley.

Thanks to our staff for such an outstanding effort to raise money for NHS Charities Together. We hope staff are feeling the benefits of exercising, and will continue to do so after the challenge has finished.
