Eight local charities share in £80,000

BGL colleagues’ competitive streak shone through in a month-long challenge which saw eight local charities share in £80,000.  

More than 650 people across the financial services business divided into eight teams for the Wheels and Heels challenge, with each team representing a different charity.

The aim was to see which team could travel the furthest by foot or on wheels during the month of October, with participants walking, running, cycling, scooting and even paddling to make up their miles. In total, the teams covered almost 70,000 miles, or 111,000km – the equivalent of almost three times around the world, or five times the length of the Great Wall of China.
