“When you have long-term savings plans, it can feel like day-to-day expenses and weekly shops are holding you back. Hopefully those who take on the challenge will earn a little bit of cash to help them out and keep them on track for whatever they’re saving for.”

“We’re tremendously excited to work with giffgaff money in hosting the challenge. No matter how you do it, it’s important to make physical fitness a key part of your life. That’s what we do for hundreds of gym-goers in Leeds. Remember that it’s never too late to start getting a little more active, and if you’re earning money while you’re doing it – well, who can say no to that?”
