Join in the Sandwell Walking and Wheeling Competition for a chance to win a £50 shopping voucher! 

An active travel officer from Sandwell Council is working closely with Sustrans to encourage Sandwell residents to move more – through walking, wheeling, cycling or running. 

Sustrans is a national charity that works for and with communities, supporting walking, wheeling and cycling to create healthier places and happier lives for everyone.

The charity is running a ‘Sandwell Workplace Walking and Wheeling Competition’, funded by Transport for West Midlands, during tFebruary. The competition is aimed at workplaces in Sandwell. The idea is to encourage workers to go for a roll or stroll during their break times. 

Sandwell workers can choose any seven days in February to go for a stroll, or a roll if they are wheelchair/ mobility scooter users. All they have to do then is complete an online entry form to explain what they enjoyed about their strolls or rolls for a chance to win a £50 shopping voucher. 

There will also be a winning workplace certificate for the Sandwell workplace that does the best!   

Who can enter?

Anyone living in Sandwell who would like to spend more time walking or wheeling around their local neighbourhood can enter. However, the competition is primarily aimed at people working at workplaces within Sandwell.

How to enter

Choose seven days in February to go for a roll or a stroll. Let Sustrans know what you enjoyed most about each walk or wheel using the online competition form. 

The competition closes at 11.59pm on Thursday 29 February. 

One winner will be contacted before Friday 8 March to claim their voucher. A top workplace will also be announced by Friday 8 March.
