Why healthy living week…? Events listed have been organised by Watford Community Housing Trust and funded through money awarded to the Trust by Barclays Bank. This money was given by the bank to enhance the lives of residents living in communities managed by the Trust and local people have decided how this money would be spent. Trust staff will also be donating their own time and energy into a number of activities during healthy living week: London to Brighton ‘virtual cycle ride’ Staff will be completing the London to Brighton Cycle Ride on static bikes at the Trust’s HQ to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. Staff from different teams will be competing against each other

Healthy Living Lunch Staff and residents will be meeting on Wednesday 1st June to share healthy home cooked lunches and exciting nonalcoholic cocktails containing ingredients from around the world. Golden Carrot Competition Staff working on each floor of the Trust have also been competing against each other to hold the most successful local event. All staff are involved and the overall event winner will be judged by Trust tenants.
