All of you

It been a heck of a year. We had a great start to 2020 with our epic Get Berkshire Active Award back in February (that was probably our last big night out for most of us!)

Despite everything that 2020 has thrown at us, we still managed an awesome 1108 Good Deeds (to put this into perspective in 2019 our total was 836!).

A huge thank you and well done to everyone in this ‘party’ as its been your ongoing contributions that has helped us achieve this. So here is the breakdown of our awesomeness:-

  • Coach calls – 49
  • Missions to older and vulnerable residents – 50
  • Quizzes – 6
  • Fitness training sessions – 17

Follow the leader

So, here are our top 5 Mission Team:
