Our sister companies Vistamatic and BetweenGlassBlinds have joined forces in a step challenge to test ourselves and raise money for an amazing local charity, Haven House Children’s Hospice.  Over the course of February 2022, each team member will strive to walk over 10,000 steps daily, helping our group to a total of 6 million strides. Director Mark Nash said, “We wanted to do something which everyone could participate in and enjoy.  With a Step Challenge, everyone can be involved.  Whether its running a 10k, going for a walk with the dog, or taking the kids to the park for a kick-about, every step will count.  We hope this will encourage people to get out in nature more, and help to improve their physical and mental health.

Both companies have provided pedometers to the team, with some counting their steps with smart watches or apps on their phone. Team members have been encouraged to ask friends and family for support via a Just Giving page –  Vistamatic BetweenGlassBlinds is fundraising for Haven House Children’s Hospice (justgiving.com)

Both Vistamatic and BetweenGlassBlinds have pledged to match the total donation, meaning for every £10 donated, Haven House will receive £30.

Nash said, “The team all submitted suggestions for charity recipients and the overwhelming choice was Haven House. We are proud to be raising money for such an amazing local charity.”
