We're continuing to get more people more active in Skelmersdale

Rachel Maile - 06 February 2019

Since May 2017 we've been working with NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group to run the Skelmersdale Rewards programme in conjunction with Well Skelmersdale. The programme rewards residents for walking, running and cycling in Skelmersdale.

Hundreds of people have joined the programme, downloaded the BetterPoints app and tracked tens of thousands activities - walking, running and cycling tens of thousands of miles and burning millions of calories! They've been able to donate their BetterPoints to local and national charities or exchange them for vouchers. 

We're really pleased to have agreed another three month extension to the project while working together with our partners to plan how to best help the people of Skelmersdale to be more active and more healthy in 2019 and beyond.
