Congratulations to Ellen from High Wycombe!
Ellen won the Grand Prize for April. She was so thrilled and chose to donate some of her winnings to local charity Shopmobility.
Here is what she said about using the BetterPoints app and winning the prize:
"I use the BetterPoints app to help track my miles towards my 2023 1000-mile challenge target - I’ve walked 568 miles so far this year.
It has encouraged me to leave my car at home to walk to and from work. I’ve worked part-time for High Wycombe Shopmobility for over 15 years. We have some lovely customers and it’s really rewarding to see the life-changing difference it can make when someone discovers our free wheelchair and mobility scooter service, which allows them to get out and about and stay independent. As a small charity we value every penny of support, so I convert the points I earn from BetterPoints into donations; I was really pleased to donate 12,000 points in March, worth £12.
In the last couple of years I’ve started to work for Living Streets, the walking charity who run the WOW walk-to-school challenge, which my children took part in when they were at primary school. Now they are older I can see how important and valuable walking and scooting to school was. As well as the environmental benefit, they arrived at school full of energy and ready to learn. We had fun meeting people and spotting things along the way, plus it was a precious time to chat to them. I think it put us in a much better mood than driving would have done, so every walk was well worth it!
I’m so glad I won the grand prize! I have opted to donate some of the points to my favourite charities which makes me feel happy knowing it will make a difference. Thank you!"
