As part of our Wellness Strategy the SAF team have successfully completed a variety of different challenges since 2018. Most recently the wellness team laid down a Free-From-Challenge, where each team member chose an item of food to give up for the entire month.
As always participation was high, with the team willing to give up a range of different treats such as bread, sugar, crisps, chocolate, cakes and many more. During the month if a forbidden treat was consumed then the offender would need to add £1 into the fine jar for charity. The charity pot soon increased as the month progressed with some members of staff more guilty than others.
SAF managed to successfully raise £30 for charity throughout the month, it also provided the team with the exposure to the health benefits of minimising treats in their diets. Feedback from the challenge was positive with everyone thoroughly enjoying the month that included plenty of banter and laughs. A big thank you to the team and their continued engagement during the challenge.
SAF's chosen charity was Crohn's and Colitis UK and made the £30 donation on 26th March 2019.
