OutRun May 2016 Complete! - Wednesday 01st Jun 2016

Congratulations to all our runners who completed OutRun May this year, a great effort by all!

Unfortunately we did not reach our targets but fun was had by everyone in the One Step team and we managed to raise £75.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Thank you to Ben O'Brien for encouraging everybody to enter this challenge to raise some money for an excellent cause, and a special mention to Sam Scriven and Liz Butcher who proved that none of us are as fit as they are!

Well done to all competitors. 

There is still time if you would like to donate, you can find out just giving page at:

Tomorrow marks the end of our challenge to Out Run May! - Tuesday 31st May 2016

Ben O'Brien our Accountant and brain behind us taking part in OutRun May would like to thank the fantastic team of runners for all their efforts for a good cause.  After losing a few runners due to injuries ( it’s been a while since we dusted off the old running shoes)  we still clocked up an impressive bank of miles between us for the 300 mile target.

If it weren’t for the effort of Sam Scriven and Elizabeth Butcher I fear it would have looked much worse.

The One Step team would like to thank you all for all your support and donations so far!

You can still help us and Macmillan by donating on this page http://www.justgiving.com/OneSteppers!

Hopefully we have helped Macmillan take One Step closer to beating Cancer for good!

Our team have cracked 100 miles this week with a total of 102 miles towards our goal at the end of week two of our OutRun May Challenge.

The team have set a joint goal of 300 miles for the month of May and are pleased to report we are 1/3 of the way there!

This week was a little slower than week one but still great progress made across the board with Elizabeth in our Yeovil branch giving Sam from Chard a 'run' for his money!

Further reporting to follow over the next two weeks however until then please visit our JustGiving page - we aim to raise £1,000 by the end of the May and we much appreciate every penny given towards this fantastic charity.

A very happy birthday to our Industrial Manager Steve! 

Steve is one of the few One Steppers who gets to visit all three of our branches regularly, so on Fridays visit to our Taunton office the team got together to wish him happy birthday and surprise him with presents of Somerset cider and DVDs.

This morning Mr Eagle told us the cider we got him was perfect company on the fabulous sun drenched weekend as he celebrated his birthday in his garden with his family.

Sounds perfect Steve and once again happy birthday from all of us at One Step.
