PJH travels 21,020 miles to raise money for NHS charities

Bathrooms, appliances, sinks and taps distributor, PJH, has donated £5,000 to NHS Charities Together, thanks to its staff completing its ‘Wellbeing Team Challenge’. Employees collectively travelled a Globe Union-spanning 21,020 miles from walking, cycling, running, swimming and kayaking.

The ‘Wellbeing Team Challenge’, organised by PJH, asked its employees to travel the world together, ‘virtually’ by any self-powered wellbeing activity in just 60 days. They covered a distance equivalent to starting in the UK and visiting places like Mexico, Montreal, Germany, Shenzhen China and Taiwan.

The team challenge, which ran throughout the summer, was designed to promote wellbeing within the company, an extremely important subject and one which PJH is keen to promote following the ever-present COVID-19 pandemic and the disruption this has brought to people’s lives.

Employees shared photos throughout the challenge, which not only highlighted efforts and progress, but brought a well-needed social aspect to the challenge and a real team feeling, as the event travelled forward towards success.

Richard George, CEO at PJH, commented: “Good mental and physical health is extremely important, and the Wellbeing Team Challenge was designed to bring everyone that bit closer together and promote activities that foster a sense of wellbeing.

“The success of this challenge proves just how close we are as a team, and the accompanying £5,000 raised for NHS Charities Together is a vote of thanks from us all for the incredible work by the NHS throughout this pandemic.”

Of the mammoth 21,020 miles achieved, 126 PJH staff collectively clocked up an average of 350 miles per day from 4,093 activities!
