Staff at Toyota Material Handling UK Ltd’s Castleford head office are raising money for local charity, Wakefield Hospice, by undertaking a 3920 mile ‘virtual’ walk.

Over a 99-day period the Toyota colleagues will cover the equivalent distance of a trek from Castleford to the company’s three European factories – in Sweden, France and Italy – and back to Yorkshire. Participants will use devices to record their steps and each week the distance covered by every person will be added to the team’s 3920 mile (7,313,670 steps!) target.

Toyota Marketing Executive, Helder Figueiredo, who will be responsible for monitoring his colleagues’ progress, commented: “Toyota is committed to the local community and Wakefield Hospice has been doing great work for more than three decades. We hope colleagues from across the company will back our team of ‘virtual’ walkers and help us to raise as much as possible for this very worthy cause.”
