Winning workplace University Hospitals of Leicester (UHL) who took part in the Activity Log have been spending their well deserved prize! UHL beat off stiff competition to gain the title of the organisation with the highest CO2 saving, and won £400 to encourage physical activity to their staff and within their workplace!
Their prize was split amongst the departments that took part and they each decided how to spend their portion. UHL's physiotherapists, who work across all three of the City based hospitals, decided that hydration was key! Due to spending large amounts of time working in the hospital gyms and hydro-pools the team asked for high quality water bottles for all their staff. (picture attached).
Laura Lillie, Physiotherapist commented: "Our team has enjoyed the challenge, and the friendly banter between the team members! It's made us think about the amount of activity we do, and we'll definately be taking part again next year!"
Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland Comprehensive Local Research Network (LNR CLRN) are putting their winnings towards a team building evening of laser quest! LNR CLRN also won the category for the most CO2 saved by a department and the have all been awarded with free health assessments courtesy of Optimum Performance Personal Training.
Bryony Jones commented on behalf of the University Hospitals of Leicester: "Staff from the Leicestershire, Northamptonshire & Rutland Comprehensive Local Research Network have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the Workplace Challenge. It has encouraged us all to do more exercise and save on CO2 by biking and walking to work.
"Our network is hosted by the University Hospitals of Leicester and we have enjoyed the friendly competition between the departments. We are going to continue the ethos of enjoying exercise with work colleagues and have organised a rounders match in May... thank you LRS for inspiring us to get fit!"
