A 25-strong team from the practice staff have today completed a 91-day virtual tour of Europe in an effort to raise much-needed funds for Queenscourt Hospice.

The team members added up all the kilometres they completed on their daily exercises to move them along a 13,700 kilometre (8500 mile) journey connecting the 25 destinations that they had each chosen as the place they wanted to visit when the easing of travel restrictions make it possible.

The journey took them North to Edinburgh, West to Vilamoura in Portugal , as far South as Malta and then East to Santorini before heading north again for the final stop in Budapest.

The activities included open water swimming , paddle boarding, climbing  yoga and hula hooping as well as the more traditional pursuits like running walking and cycling. 

It was a great team effort that kept everyone motivated to keep active outside of work.

The initiative was centred around the 5 steps to mental well being which is promoted by the NHS and is especially relevant for everyone at this time. The 5 steps include keeping active, giving, connecting with others, learning new skills and mindfulness.

The fund-raising total currently sits at just under £2000 and further donations can be made to help the team reach their target of £2500. The link to the Virgin Money Giving page can be found on this link and all donations are greatly appreciated by the entire team.
