A charity helping disadvantaged youngsters by teaching them to ride and care for horses has benefited from a team challenge to mark Scotts’ of Thrapston’s centenary year.

Everyone at Scotts was encouraged to walk or run 100 kilometres in a 10-week period to raise funds for Ride High, based in Milton Keynes.

Managing Director, James Scott, said: “This was a fun challenge to help mark our centenary year and to raise some money for charity. Our team effort means we have handed over just short of £200 to an excellent cause.”

To keep things competitive there was also a sweepstake for the staff with a £20 voucher up for grabs for the person who guessed the nearest total distance covered.

19 members of staff took part in the challenge and they clocked up 3237.16km in total.

The sweepstake winner was Brett Goldsmith, Sales Manager, with the carefully considered guess of 3,126km.

Everyone who took part and completed or achieved more than 100km was also entered into a prize draw. Lucky Brett scooped the third prize of a bottle of Prosecco. HR Manager, Michelle Dean won the second prize of a £50 meal voucher (at a restaurant of her choice) and the first prize of a smart watch (Fitbit Versa 3) went to Craig Boneham, Truss Designer.
