Creed staff are 'stepping up' to raise £10,000 for charity

Staff at Creed Foodservice have pledged to raise £10,000 in just one month for Cheltenham-based charity WellChild.

The staff at the Staverton-based headquarters have committed to record 10,000 miles of steps between June 1 and June 30.

To kick-start the challenge, a team of 32 Creed staff members, along with their friends and families took part in the Cheltenham Three Peaks Challenge.

The one-day trek covered Cleeve, Crickley and Leckhampton Hills and takes in some of the best views that the Cotswolds has to offer.

Creed Active's WellChild Step Up Challenge is aimed at everyone in the organisation and to all abilities.

Staff are being sponsored per step, from just a few additional flights up the stairs to full-on treks across the glorious Gloucestershire countryside.

Creed Active is the company's internal programme to ensure the wellbeing of staff and is closely linked to its charity programme.

Creed Foodservice works with a selection of local and national charities, such as Wellchild based in Cheltenham, with food donations, fundraising, charitable campaigns, volunteering and events.

In 2018 Creed donated time, cash and food worth more than £45,000 to 104 events, with the Creed Foodservice lottery raising a further £8,163.
