Wellbeing Champions Update
Sarah Wood and Evelyn Burgess, two of the Wellbeing Champions at Plymouth City Council won a “Star Award” in their Work awards evening for Colleagues of the Year, for all of their hard work at promoting wellbeing within their team and making a difference!
Jane and Lucy from Plymouth Options have been hard at work; they have had Bella the Therapy dog come into the office for all the staff, One You Plymouth Services (Know Your Measurements and NHS Health Checks)
were offered to all staff, and also the Smoothie bike was hired for a bit of fun.
Small gestures make a big difference.
