18-mile walk for Mental Health Awareness Week

Last updated: 9 June, 2022

What a day! 18 miles walked in the One Co-op Eastend Walkabout during Mental Health Awareness Week. We did this to support the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH).

It was so good to meet Co-op colleagues at 7 food stores and 7 funeralcare branches along the way. Rachael from SAMH, Ruth Hall (NMC Elected Member) and Sandra Burt (Member Pioneer Kincardine!) cheered Michael McCready (FSM Glasgow East) and myself (Jackie Baker, MPC Glasgow East and Lanarkshire) on.    This was our second Eastend Walkabout. Michael and I didn't finish last year, so we're so proud to complete the 18 miles this year. I couldn't have done it without Michael's support and our great colleagues along the way. 

  We hope that more colleagues will be able to join us on the One Co-op Eastend Walkabout 2023.  #MHAW2022  #onecoop  #itswhatwedo
