For the first 6 months of the year here in Finol we ran an internal weight loss challenge for all the staff to participate in. The challenge was to loose weight and for every pound lost each month Finol would donate €5 to a pot, however for each pound gained each month the staff member would have to donate the €5 to the pot. At the end of the 6 months the person who had improved their weight the best based on their starting weight would get to pick the charity that the money in the pot would be donated to.
We had some great fun here each month with staff eager to meet their targets and to place on the leader board. While everyone was a winner improving their weights over the 6 months there was one leader, one of our delivery drivers Alan Dunne. As the winner Alan choose to donate the pot to his son Michael’s school, Gaelscoil an Chuillinn in Dublin 15.
Pictured below is Alan and his Son Michael presenting the school principal Fergus with a cheque for €1200 which was the amount raised through the efforts off all the staff in Finol.
