Paul Hammersley is walking to work to raise money - starting at 5am, walking 12 miles
On Friday, 5th April, Paul Hammersley, a Software Developer at Reynolds & Reynolds is raising money by participating in National Walk to Work Day.
Paul will be walking a total of 12 miles from his home in Stourbridge to the Reynolds office in Northfield in aid of raising money for a local charity, the Northfield Community Partnership. He will start his journey at 5am, which will take approximately 4 hours, mainly across fields and over the Clent Hills to arrive at work on time.
In addition, Paul has vowed that if he raises over £500 in sponsorship, he will also walk the return journey home after work rather than catching a lift with one of his colleagues.
Walking to work has many benefits
Whether it's reducing your carbon footprint or you just want to get some exercise into your day, change your daily routine, if only for one day and enjoy the fresh air with a slightly different mode of transport into the office - your feet.
Why not join in the fun and participate in National Walk to Work Day. Whether you chose to walk the whole way to work, get off the bus a few stops earlier or walk partially the way to work - it all helps. Walking is a fantastic way to keep active and maintain a healthy heart.
The Northfield Community Partnership
The charity provides help and support to over 10,000 local people a year by offering a range of vital services that provide opportunities to build lives, as well as organising local events throughout the year, including:
Staff at Reynolds & Reynolds will also be participating in a dress down on Friday, 5th April by wearing casual clothes in exchange for a donation to help Paul raise more money for a great cause and support the local charity.
