The month of May saw Prettys staff commence their next walking challenge in aid of Suffolk Mind, our ‘charity of the year’. We set a challenge of walking a total of 420 miles, which is the distance from our offices, in Ipswich, to Arras, Ipswich’s twinned town, and back again.

The team had ‘reached’ Arras by the second week of our Miles for May challenge, by completing 210 miles. The team were on a roll and we then completed the full 420 miles well within the month timeframe. We therefore set ourselves a new challenge of whether we could get back to Arras and walk another 210 miles by the end of the month. There seemed to be no stopping the team and by the end of the month, we had completed 1,748 miles, quadrupling our original target of 420 miles!

It was great to see so many members of staff take part in this group challenge and some colleagues were very creative with their walking routes! See the picture below – can you spot the word? In total, the team raised £600 for Suffolk Mind.
