DePuy Synthes staff raise thousands for food banks

Staff from DePuy Synthes in Beeston held a fundraising activity day with sponsored walks and cycle rides at the Chatsworth estate.

Called ‘Power Up The Peaks’ the day was the first chance many had to meet up socially since the pandemic.
An amazing 79 walkers signed up for a 12 mile hike over hard terrain, with a further 16 opting for an easier 10 mile walk. 24 cyclists took on the 66 mile challenge and 12 more rode a 24 mile course.

Their efforts raised a massive £5,849 which was handed over to Holbeck Food Bank and the Salvation Army, providing 212 families with an emergency food parcel. This is on top of the support staff provided to the two organisations throughout the pandemic.

The day was part of parent company Johnson & Johnson’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) summer staff challenge.
