May 2021 marks Cintra HR & Payroll’s 40th anniversary and, as much as we would have loved to mark the occasion with a party, circumstances dictate that, for now, our party clothes must remain in our wardrobes!

As May is also National Walking Month, we are substituting the party for the Cintra 40th Anniversary Step Challenge! The aim of the challenge is to walk the equivalent distance of John O’Groats to Land’s End (the most Northern part of Scotland to the most Southern part of England) which equals 874 miles (1406km). The challenge is the brainchild of Cintra’s Head of Outsourced Services, Agnes Plewa-Weir:

“In absence of being able to come together to celebrate, I thought it would be a great idea if we could find something which built on our amazing team spirit. It has been tough for everyone working remotely for so long and this challenge enables us to work together towards a common goal, with the added benefit of raising much needed funds for a local charity. And on top of that we get to take in the sights of the beautiful North East…fast becoming the worst kept secret ever, with the publication of the latest Which? Travel Report!”

The challenge will help to raise funds for the Chronicle Sunshine Fund – a local Charity that provides specialist equipment to children with disabilities, special needs or terminal illnesses and Cintra’s chosen Charity for the year. Each team member has contributed £5, which Cintra will double at the end of the challenge.

We would be delighted if you would support our willing walkers by sharing our story or adding to the funds on our Just Giving page. All contributions are very gratefully received. Blister plasters also welcome!
