National potato supplier Branston has taken the first 32 million steps of its 2022 charity fundraising campaign, after colleagues were challenged to walk 10,000 steps a day for every day of September. 

Branston’s Lincoln, Somerset and Perth sites each chose a new charity to support and partner with; those being the Lincoln City Foundation, Andy’s Man Club and Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

And, already, more than 100 colleagues from the three Branston sites have collaboratively walked 32 million steps, which Branston celebrated by presenting last year’s charities (Lincoln Foodbank, Taunton Foodbank and Perth and Kinross Foodbank) with their cheques totalling almost £20,000.

James Truscott, managing director at Branston said: “Getting behind charitable causes is hugely important to all of us at Branston, and we’re eager to allow each site to choose a charity of the year that means the most to their team.”

“An incredible number of people have got involved in our 10,000 steps a day challenge this month, which shows how much our workforce wants to support these charities.”  

“This month’s efforts are just the start of our plans to support our three chosen charities of the year. As we look ahead, we’ll be planning many more activities to ensure we can raise as much money as possible for our causes.”
