Sustainable Star Mary

08 November 2021

From car driver to regular walker

Congratulations to Mary R who lives in Thurnby, who is our Sustainable Star for October! She joined the Choose How You Move challenge in March 2021 and was using her car 4 days a week.

She told us about how she has been making changes to the way she travels day to day and gets out of the house to be more active.

"Instead of using the car and getting lifts to work, I walk a lot more, and use public transport. I am also walking more by not catching the bus at the nearest stop, sometimes walk two or three stops further on and getting off two or three stops from home.

I am really feeling the benefit of getting more exercise as a result of downloading the BetterPoints app.” – Mary R from Thurby
