UNISON staff Step Up this September

UNISON Eastern’s members have been running themselves ragged this year, so our staff are going to lace up their running shoes to do the same for you.

All our regional organisers have signed up for Step Up September, a month-long challenge raising money in aid of There for You, UNISON’s welfare charity.

They’ll be walking, cycling or running for your donations, aiming to clock up 500 miles over the month with a target of £500 – of course if you beat that target, they could be persuaded to do more…

UNISON Eastern regional organiser Peter Passingham, who’s spearheading the Step Up September challenge in the region, said: Public service workers have been stepping up and running around to keep things going during the Covid-19 crisis — from the NHS to social care, education to police staff, our communities rely of these key workers and more.

“We rely on those services as much as anyone, so we’re stepping up and running around to raise some cash for There for You and supporting UNISON’s 1.3 million members.”
