NHS staff get on their bikes for a free breakfast!
The South West Yorkshire Mental Health NHS Trust is hoping to encourage more staff to get on their bike this week, to celebrate national ‘Bike Week’.
On Wednesday, 15 June 2005, in partnership with other NHS Trusts, staff who work for the mental health and learning disability Trust are being given the opportunity to cycle to work and receive a free breakfast.
Bike week takes place from 11-19 June and is an annual celebration of all kinds of cycling and this year’s theme is ‘everyday cycling for health and fitness’.
The Trust is offering free breakfasts to any one of its 2500 staff who cycle to their place of work.
Johan Celliers, Environmental & Logistics Officer, is responsible for healthier and greener transport initiatives within the Trust and says, ‘We want to encourage everyone who can to make full use of, what should be, warm summer weather and cycle to work. Staff will not only have a fitter and healthier start to the day but they will also discover the real pleasure and benefits of cycling as an alternative to travelling by car’.
