Karen Hollyhock and the ICU Calorie Crunchers, who won the Wellbeing Ambassador award at the inaugural Leadership in Wellbeing awards have been presented gifts from Fairway Group who were in the same category.
The Calories Crunchers were formed at the beginning of 2019 to encourage each other to exercise and eat healthier. So far the 18 staff members have lost over 20 stone combined.
Fairway Group’s Marketing Manager Sam Wilkes, who was commended in the category, was so impressed by the winners that the company wanted to show its appreciation.
“It’s such a great scheme and has shown incredible results in a short space of time so we wanted to give them our own congratulations,” he said, “hopefully the group will be able to use the reusable KeepCups to keep them going on their long shifts”.
He continued, “There was a friendly competition in the lead-up to the awards as Karen’s husband (who is also called Sam) has recently joined Fairway Group but we are honestly over the moon that the Calorie Crunchers have won – they show us what we can aspire to achieve”.
Sam met Karen and several of the Crunchers on the ICU and High Dependency Unit to congratulate them in person.
