A new year brings a new challenge…
My team and I, plus the wider SOMT team at Barclays are going to collectively be virtually walking/running and cycling the distance from Teeside in the UK via the various Barclays sites we are based for work in the UK (including Cardiff) to Pune in India – almost 6,500 miles in total this year.
Why are we doing this? Two simple reasons:
· First – at a time when most of us are working from home, having something as a target that helps keep us all fit and healthy is really important for mental well being as well as physical.· Secondly, and really importantly to all of us, we have selected a number of charities that are aiming to help those in most financial need through the pandemic with food provisions etc… these are all local to the sites in which we work - supporting the communities near our places of work is something we are all passionate about. What do we want from you?
Obviously it would be great if you could give a donation of any amount to one of the charities we have selected (Cardiff foodbank in this case) to support their great work, but if you cant, a simple cheer/like/word of encouragement would be just as appreciated to keep us on the virtual road to Pune (and maybe even motivate us to try the ‘return’ journey)
