Congratulations to recent winner Jackie from Aylesbury!

Since joining the BetterPoints Bucks challenge she has already redeemed some points for a Sainsbury's shopping voucher. Plus she has visited the Health Station at Aylesbury Library to get her blood pressure checked and collected 2,500 BetterPoints.

Here is what she said about using the app:

"Before I downloaded the BetterPoints app I was a bit of a couch potato. I only walked a couple of times a week to go shopping, but never for pleasure or exercise.

I heard about the app via an email from Healthwatch Bucks. I chose to get involved as it inspired me to exercise routinely and benefit from accruing points.

The app is easy to use and navigate. As I walk, I like to see the route I have taken on the map, distance walked, and time taken. It's also great to see how I have saved the planet a bit by walking.

My activity habits have changed since using the app. I routinely walk increased distances now and I have lost several pounds in weight over the weeks by walking.  Taking walks in the countryside has also really benefited my mental health.

Plus, financially I have money left at the end of the month which I’ve saved. Last month I was able to buy some new activewear to start a new exercise class."

Keep up the great work Jackie!
