Another 12 companies have signed up to a scheme encouraging people to walk more and lead a healthier lifestyle.

The latest firms which have joined Walk Barnsley add to the 50 businesses already participating in the programme.

Charities, schools and coach companies have joined the scheme, a two-year project co-ordinated by sport and fitness organisation Team Activ. They include Crossroads Care Barnsley, Grays Travel, Berneslai Homes, the British Heart Foundation and Cranswick Convenience Foods.

Team Activ director Darren Padgett said: “Many people who work full-time, do shifts or commute, struggle to find the time during a day to walk which is why it’s crucial for employers to do all they can to help.”
