John Smith, Group HR Director for Greene King said:

"We're pleased to have been able to support Suffolk County Council's project to encourage healthier and more environmentally friendly commutes to work.

"We want to support our team members to lead healthier lifestyles, and this event was an ideal way to inspire those we are able, to consider walking or cycling to work

"We had a great turnout and, with the nice weather we've been experiencing recently, anticipate more of our team will leave the car at home and commute by bike or foot!"
