RED January - supporting you to beat the winter blues away

December 30, 2022

This January we're supporting RED January - an initiative founded by Hannah Beecham in 2016. 

Hannah was inspired to start RED January after witnessing the transformative effect that regular physical activity had on her Mum, as she recovered from a period of severe depression.  There is now a growing community of over 250,000 REDers including some of our own team.

Shannon, Business Support Officer loves being outdoors on the fells.  Shannon says “ I enjoy hiking because of the sense of achievement you get from it. As someone who works predominately at a desk full time, I find there is nothing better than getting out into the fells and enjoying nature. That being said, walking in general is a key part of daily routine and makes a huge difference to my overall wellbeing”.

And Clare (Development Officer for Eden and Older Adults Programme Lead) has been supporting RED January since 2017 moving every day in a variety of ways including walking and being an instructor at Fitsteps fitness classes.

We will be sharing photos and stories from our team throughout the month so please do keep checking back here for updates. And follow us on Facebook too!
