Morrisons Cardiff Bay 500,000 step challenge in October

The team at Morrisons, Cardiff Bay, take  on a  500,000 step challenge in October as part of City Hospice’s Virtual Challenge. The team have decided to walk 500,000 steps which covers 250 miles. This is the approximate distance from Cardiff Bay to their head office in Bradford.

Shannon Goodwin, Community Champion of Morrisons Cardiff Bay said:

“City Hospice cares for families in Cardiff and is a local charity very close to home and to our hearts. City Hospice do an amazing job looking after and taking care of those with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses and providing end of life care.

Our Virtual Challenge is to walk the 250 miles, 500,000 steps, to our head office, Hilmore House in Bradford during the month of October.

We are tracking our steps on phones and smart watches. We have around 100 employees signed-up and I am aiming for the whole store to take part.  If so we may be able to reach our goal before the end of the month.

Our colleagues do a lot of steps in their shifts and we’ll also organise walks  (where we can and it’s safe to do so).

I’m really looking forward to seeing how far we have walked, reaching milestones and seeing what we achieved as a team. We plan to ‘virtually’ stop off at the other Morrison’s stores along the route.

We love taking part in challenges like this, and its great to be able to still support our local hospice. It’ll build team morale too and raise those vital funds for such an amazing cause.

I encourage other workplaces to get involved too. It really does bring the whole team together when at the moment we are being told to stay apart”.

Daisy Magill, Fundraising Officer at City Hospice  said:

“Thank you so much to Shannon and the team for taking on this special 500,000 step challenge in October. It’s fantastic that the whole team are getting involved and raising money to support our Recovery Fund.

There will be buckets placed throughout the store in October so if you’re shopping in Morrisons Cardiff Bay please make a donation”.
