One of our most recent monthly prize draw winners in Skelmersdale, who received 25,000 BetterPoints for herself and the chance to nominate a charity to receive the same amount (worth £25), was Helen S. Here is what she had to say:
“I have been much keener to walk around town knowing there are targets to aim for. I'll be keeping those (25,000) BetterPoints to treat myself - I need new insoles for one, and will probably need a new phone battery soon, after all the GPS usage! I chose West Lancashire Citizens Advice to donate the £25 to because the Skelmersdale Centre has been an enormous help to me when I have needed them. I hope to start jogging again this year. I was a competitive club runner up to 15 years ago when I suffered a broken ankle when a car hit me while I was cycling. Not sure I'll ever get to try scooting though - would probably crash! I initially had trouble understanding how to use the app, but wrote into customer care and was assisted by the team as needed. I have convinced one other person to use BetterPoints, but a lot of my friends and family still don't have a smartphone. Thanks for the inspiration!"
Good to hear that the app has been beneficial in enabling Helen to get out more.
