A business in Weston has raised nearly £600 for Sports Relief after taking part in a walking challenge last week.

Staff at Focus7 International teamed up with their counterparts in the north to achieve a combined distance of 118 miles, contributing approximately 230,000 steps towards the national billion steps target for Sports Relief.

While on annual leave directors Vida Barr-Jones and Leona Barr-Jones hikes four miles up Pen Y Fan in Wales with their dog Draig, and some members of staff walked to the Weston office, covering a combined total of 40 miles, coming from Hitchin, Baldock, Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage.

Account manager Jen Denman said: “I am personally so proud of the whole team for stepping up, quite literally, to this challenge. I’m humbled by the amount of donations and generosity people have shown to support us – it’s such a fantastic cause, we are proud to have been part of it.”
