Five reasons to sign up to march in March with Camden Giving

Businesses, Events, News – Tuesday, February 15th, 2022

Camden-based businesses are encouraged to take part in March in March to help raise vital funds for local groups. The task is simple: You and your team challenge yourselves to walk 10,000 steps a day (or as many as you can) every day in March.

Camden and Islington businesses will be competing against each other and other businesses in the area. The winning borough and business will be decided in in the first week of April.

5 reasons to march in March with Camden Giving:

1. Step towards equality

Not everyone shares the same opportunities and access to services and support in the borough so Camden Giving raises valuable funds to ensure everyone has equal access including for young people, older residents, and families.

2. Support your health and wellbeing

There is a direct correlation with walking and reducing stress in the workplace and having a positive affect on your mental wellbeing.

3. Fund life-changing opportunities

“Young Grant Makers gives us the power and a voice to provide life-changing opportunities,” said Michelle, one of Camden Giving’s Young Grant Makers. Amongst their work, Camden Giving places young people at the heart of decision-making, with their 2021 young grant makers having funded projects that positively impact young people’s health, wellbeing, creativity and potential. 

4. Cultivate team moral

Volunteering and community participation have a noticeably positive affect on motivation, wellbeing and positivity. This partly occurs due to it encouraging individuals to feel like they are part of something bigger. Education and Employers’ Value of Volunteering report found that 79% of employees reported improvements in their sense of mission at work, and 94% felt they had a better understanding of social issues. 

5. Engaging with the local community and Camden’s many green spaces

Connect with your colleagues in new and engaging ways, whether it’s a visit to one or more of Camden’s local parks and green spaces, signing up to local class or activity, or a creative photoshoot around the neighbourhood.
