“34 kilometre walk along the Cotswold Way”

‘People – Our Greatest Asset’ is one of our company’s core values and we strive to live up to it by doing our best to look after our own, through our employee welfare scheme and incentivising them to take part in regular physical activity – we want the best for our people.

In an effort to actively encourage some physical activity, get them to the great outdoors, promote their mental wellbeing and support a charity in the process, we have organised a 34 kilometre walk along the Cotswold Way.

The walk takes place tomorrow, Friday 25th March, with 30 members of staff from BladeRoom and ModuleCo taking part. Their day will begin bright and early, setting off from the Painswick Beacon at 7am, crossing Coopers Hill and Crickley Hill, following the route all the way to the Rising Sun Hotel on Cleeve Hill for a well earned beer and a bite to eat.

It will be quite the challenge, even for the avid walkers amongst us. The route will take 10 hours, allowing for a few breaks and stopping for lunch, with a total elevation gain over 3,000 feet and the average person burning approximately 2,000 calories in the process – so we will be loading up on energy-filled snacks for them!

“Don’t forget your plasters”

Our team wanted the walk to be more than a day out of the office, using it to fundraise in support of the Ukraine War Crisis Appeal. Like many of us, they have been deeply moved by the recent events in Ukraine and are asking for small donations to help support those who have been worst affected by the conflict which has caused a humanitarian crisis in the country.

The Ukraine War Crisis Appeal will use the funds raised to procure medicines and medical equipment from UK and European suppliers. Donations to the charity have already been used to purchase trauma treatment packages, and the list of others essentials to be supplied is growing rapidly.

You can show your support for the team by donating to their Just Giving page.

Good luck to everyone at BladeRoom Group taking part tomorrow and thank you to those who have helped organise the event. I will be taking part and wish everyone the very best during your challenge and fundraising efforts. Don’t forget your plasters and I look forward to sharing a well-earned beer with you all at the finish line.
