Colleagues show team SPIRIT at the Corporate Games

UK Corporate Games

Colleagues from across the Group have returned victorious from a weekend at the UK Corporate Games.

Scooping 13 medals, Places for People finished third in its division (51-100 athletes) and 11th in the medallist table.

The games took place in Nottingham between 6 and 9 July and 100 employees came together to compete in a range of sports from softball to dragon boat racing, golf, running and soccer.

We've been involved in the Corporate Games for the last six years. Taking part in this event is a great opportunity to promote team building and wellbeing and is well aligned to the Group's SPIRIT values of support, positivity, integrity, respect, innovative and together. 

More than 5,000 entrants from over 100 companies swam, pitched, drove and sprinted at this year's event and we faced some stiff competition from the likes of Asda, Wilmott Dixon and Vodafone. This didn't faze team Places for People, and we came home with five gold medals, four silver and four bronze.

Thank you to all of our colleagues for making it an event to remember, and congratulations to all of the medal winners.
