Despite some achy legs and sore feet, the BHETA team are progressing well within their Lockdown Challenge but we still need your help. We are now in week 5 and they have walked or run 924 miles collectively in support of The Rainy Day Trust.
The team aimed to collectively walk 509 miles during lockdown, that being the distance between BHETA’s most northerly member, housewares manufacturer, Aydya based in Dundee and the most southerly, heating and plumbing supplier, Select Products based in Torbay. But because we started so well, we decided that despite the blisters we were going to double our efforts by making the journey twice….yes that’s 1018 miles before the end of 2020!!
Each member of the BHETA team will individually complete as many miles as they can during the next two months and record the distances achieved until the combined target of 509 is reached, (now 1018!).
“The lockdown challenge has started so well that we have decided to double the distance, I think we have all really embraced the challenge for such a good cause, let’s keep up the good work and hit our new target!,” said Member Services Manager Nicola Adams. She continued, “we’ve enjoyed ‘waving’ to the members we’ve passed on the ‘virtual’ way!
“The Rainy Day Trust is the only charity which exists solely to help people who work or have worked in the UK’s home improvement and enhancement industry, so it’s a great cause for BHETA to support. We are all hoping that the BHETA membership will sponsor the team, so we can raise funds which are much needed in these difficult times.”
The BHETA 500 Mile Walk team comprises Nicola Adams, Helen Farnell and Zara Miah from BHETA Member Services, Marketing Manager, Steve Richardson, Chief Operating Officer, Will Jones, Executive Chairman, Andrew Weiss, Seema Grantham, Housewares Sector Manager, Keeley Vernon, DIY Sector Manager and Finance Director, Clare Holland.
