Festive 5 is here!

  • StopHunger

Each year, Sodexo launches an annual winter fundraising activity to support Stop Hunger and it's charity partners. This year, Sodexo are introducing Festive 5 - the chance for Sodexo colleagues to get moving 5 km, support their mental wellbeing and raise money for good causes over the festive season.

All of us have experienced some form of lockdown during 2020, potentially causing serious impact on our mental health. With the arrival of dark winter nights, this is fast becoming a priority on everyone’s mind.

We already know that taking part in regular physical activity is something that can improve wellbeing, especially mental health.

With December right around the corner, Sodexo are introducing Festive 5 - a regional Stop Hunger fundraising activity encouraging people to move 5, donate 5 and nominate 5 over the winter period. 

As an incentive to get everyone moving, three Festive 5 prizes are up for grabs:

  • Best time - this is for those who like to run.
  • Best costume - this is for those who like to have fun.
  • Festive Spirit - this is for those who love to spread the Christmas cheer!

If you would like to take part in Festive 5, head over to Your_Sodexo for all the information you need.

Remember, once you’ve completed your 5 km, please donate to the Stop Hunger Foundation. We’re suggesting everyone who takes part makes a £/€5 donation where they can – that’s £/€1 for every kilometre, and a massive contribution to our charity partners. Click here to make your donation.

Thank you in advance to everyone who takes part in Sodexo's Festive 5 - your mental ‘elf’ needs you, so let's get moving and take part where you can.
