Congratulations to Joy from Aylesbury who won £25 in BetterPoints

Joy joined the BetterPoints Bucks challenge in January and has been inspired to make her commute to work at Stoke Mandeville Hospital on foot more regularly. She heard about the app from a staff newsletter and is very impressed so far.

Here is what she said about the challenge and how it has helped her:

"Despite walking to work occasionally I used to drive most days out of convenience. Working at a busy hospital, especially on a day shift, I would really struggle to get a parking space. After joining the BetterPoints Bucks challenge I decided to start walking to work more regularly and get more active.

As a result, I’m saving money each week on fuel expenses, and at the same keeping active and fit. I feel healthier and it’s great to not have to struggle to find a car parking space each day. 

The app has really helped me to cement my new habits, and now the weather is improving I might just start walking to the gym too and earn extra points.

I’m pleased to see that the Stoke Mandeville Gym is now a Move More at the Gym location so I can check in there when I do a workout and earn some bonus points."
