Workers at a mortgage service company in Crossflatts have completed an awards scheme that encourages them to look after their hearts and keep healthy.

Colleagues at UK Asset Resolution Ltd (UKAR) – which has its office in Croft Road – have finished the silver award stage of their Healthy Heart Mark Employer Award, a scheme run by Yorkshire-based national charity Heart Research UK.

The company had previously teamed up with Heart Research UK to organise ‘pay and weigh’ slimming classes, the provision of health tips on the firm’s own intranet and healthy eating workshops run by Heart Research UK lifestyle advisors.

These initiatives were further supported by company-led activities such as boxercise and pilates classes.

Vicky Young, who is a health champion at the firm, said: “We will continue to introduce new and inspiring initiatives to help colleagues have healthy hearts, as well as improving their overall health during the year.”
