THREE colleagues at a stairlift company are raising money this month by walking a total of at least 900,000 steps in aid of the Stroke Association.

Ian Dysart, Carolyn Kilburn and Bruce Bedford, from Companion, based in Guiseley, are all walking 10,000 steps every day this month.

They are doing this as part of the British Health Trades Association's 'Steptember' campaign, raising awareness of the work done by the Stroke Association, which was chosen as many of its members provide equipment and services to stroke survivors.

Mr Dysart, national sales manager at Companion, said: "Doing the right thing is so important in today's society and fundraising activities such as BHTA's Steptember are just one of the ways we can demonstrate our commitment to making the world a better place for everyone.

"It's also great fun for everyone taking part and helps to build closer relationships with the other BHTA companies involved.

"We're looking forward to completing our daily step targets and helping everyone to beat last year's total."
