Prizes for active shoppers

Published: Thursday 19th August 10

Starting tomorrow (Thursday), visitors to some of the borough's supermarkets will have the chance to pick up healthy prizes along with their shopping.

Walk4life As part of the Walk4Life campaign, shoppers will be asked to wear pedometers while they walk around the store to measure how many steps they take while filling their baskets.

Participants will be entered into a draw for the chance to win seven days free membership to the borough's sports centres. Other prizes up for grabs include the new Diana Moran exercise video, supermarket vouchers and healthy food hampers.

The competition aims to increase awareness about the huge benefits regular walking can have upon your health and wellbeing.

Staff will also be on hand to give out information about the free-guided walks which take place every week across Wandsworth. The walks are led by trained walk leaders who can advise and guide residents towards building up their physical activity at a pace that suits them.

Regular walking can help reduce your blood pressure, lower your stress levels, and manage your weight. It can also help prevent serious health conditions.

The competition will take place on the following days and locations:

  • Sainsbury's, Garret Lane, Wandsworth Town - Thursday 19 and Friday 20 August
  • Asda, Lavender Hill, Clapham Junction - Saturday 21, Sunday 22 and Monday 23 August
  • Waitrose, Southside Shopping Centre, Wandsworth Town - Thursday 2 and Friday 3 September
