Win a tank of fuel 2016
During October and November we are promoting carsharedevon.com and running a “win a tank of fuel” competition. Anyone who registers their journey at carsharedevon.com and sends another member a request to share message between the 3rd October 2016 and the 28th November 2016 will be automatically included in a free draw to win a tank of fuel.
Car sharing has hit the headlines recently following the success of both James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke web series, and Peter Kay’s Car Share TV show.
Travel Devon would like your business to get involved. Host a FREE Travel Devon Sustainable Travel event for employees and encourage staff to travel to work using alternative travel options; such as walking, cycling, public transport and car sharing.
For more information about hosting a Travel Devon event, sustainable travel incentives for your business or the grant funding scheme contact the Travel Devon team at Traveltowork@devon.gov.uk or call 01392 222 828

Sit Less, Move More this Friday
for ‘ On Your Feet Britain Day’ the first day of it's kind challenging individuals and companies across Britain to swap sitting for standing to combat cardiovascular disease and other conditions.
With the average Brit now spending 8.9 hours sitting down every day, the Government’s Chief Medical Officer warns that even if you can hit the recommended 150 minutes of exercise a week you are still putting your health at risk.
