Sintons racks up thousands of miles during Active April

Around 7,000 miles were covered by 50 staff at Sintons during a month-long initiative to promote wellbeing through activity at the law firm.

The Active April challenge brought together people from across the business, working together in teams of five to accrue as many miles as possible.

The participation of 50 staff is the most the annual challenge has ever had, with activities including walking, running, cycling, rowing and swimming.

Active April – which has previously been known as Miles in March at the firm – supports Sintons’ commitment to promoting health and wellbeing among its team, with exercise playing a key role in that.

This year’s challenge was organised by trainee solicitor Emily Richardson and facilities assistant Simon Anderson, who coordinated teams’ activities throughout the month.

Gemma Hewitt, head of HR at Sintons, said: “Getting active is a really important way to create healthy habits both for your physical and mental health.

“Active April has been a fun way to get people doing physical activities they may not have done before, enjoying the fresh air and getting to know their team members.

“We have recently signed up to the Better Heath at Work Award and this is a fantastic way to continue to support our colleagues on important aspects of their own health and wellbeing.”

Christopher Welch, managing partner at Sintons, added: “Supporting the wellbeing of our team is something we care deeply about at Sintons. Our absolute commitment is to delivering the best possible service to our clients, but in doing that, we must also be mindful of taking steps to safeguard our own health and wellbeing.

“Active April has been a real success, with a record number of our team taking part and a phenomenal total being achieved. Initiatives of this kind are also very important in team building, and strengthening relationships between colleagues further still.”
