AYRSHIRE College has been awarded the ‘Walk at Work Award’ which recognises workplaces in Scotland creating healthy and active workforces.

Staff at the college have been encouraged to complete a daily mile route mapped out at each campus.

Ayrshire College is the only further education college to have achieved the award across three campuses.

By promoting walking as an easy way to get to and from work and meetings, Ayrshire College is reducing their carbon footprint and helping to reduce congestion and emissions in Ayrshire.

Health, safety and wellbeing advisor, Lisa Little, said: “It’s great to get this recognition because we are passionate about promoting the health benefits of walking to our staff and students.”
