‘Having My Journey coming into the Virgin Media Winnersh Office and provide information about National Walking Month really helped myself and my colleagues to think about being more active during the working day. I’ve joined the fortnightly walking group run by Anita, and have encouraged a few colleagues to join the group too.’ Vinay Pitambaran, Virgin Media - Winnersh Business Park
