Our most recent winner: Emma

Emma has won a Freedom Leisure Annual Pass by travelling actively and using BetterPoints. This will enable her to use the gym and facilities to get back to playing tennis, whilst discovering new parts of Brighton & Hove with Move for Change

Here is what she said about the app and the effect on her travel habits:

"Winning the Freedom Leisure Annual Pass has been such a nice surprise to start the year. I can’t say I’m the person who never wins anything anymore! I’ve had quite a long-term knee injury so I’m hoping to use all of the facilities and classes at the centre to speed up my recovery. I’m hoping I can get back to playing tennis regularly like I used to.
Since starting out with Move for Change back in 2021, it’s definitely motivated me to walk more. I find it very interesting to have a record of all the statistics from my walks and to see how they stack up, especially the time and distance of my activities.
Generally I go for a walk every lunchtime, which is good for my mental health after being spending the morning inside at work. I often meet a friend who I walk with, and a chat and a wander is always lovely.Whilst on a lunchtime walk, I discovered Davis Park which I never knew existed!I also discovered “the rest” of Withdean Park which is the furthest side from the A23. The lilac trees are absolutely amazing!"

A huge well done to Emma, who has won 5,000 BetterPoints for sharing her story with us.
