Borough Insight

Active April winner

Last month we encouraged borough residents to boost their mental and physical wellbeing in the borough’s great outdoors.

As part of a fun challenge, residents were asked to sign a pledge to take part in Active April and make a note of all the activities they were doing each week. This could have been how many hours they had jogged, miles walked, or types of sports played. The most active person in Epsom and Ewell was promised a £25 sports voucher to spend in their local chosen sports outlet.

Charlotte is the Fundraising & Marketing Coordinator at Age Concern Epsom & Ewell. She's had a very active month taking part in Age Concern Epsom & Ewell Virtual Easter Bunny Hop throughout April as well as the Great Run Solo April Challenge.

Charlotte told us how amazing it was she had won the voucher and that she never normally wins anything, especially not fitness related.

She said "I seem to now have the running bug and have signed up to take part in the London Vitality 10k on the 31 May 2021. The Active April challenge was timed perfectly as it fit in very nicely with my training for the 10k and also as part of my training for our Mount Snowdon Trek this August to raise funds for Age Concern Epsom & Ewell..

"Since January I have been on a mission to get and stay active, to ensure I can reach the summit. In light of this challenge ahead, I would love to have a voucher for Sports Direct as I will need some new walking boots for the trek".
