Staff and service and users from the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust’s (BIRT) York House decided challenge themselves to walk around the medieval bar walls in the city of York.

As part of the celebrations of 25 years of BIRT, the challenge of walking 25 miles to represent 25 years was undertaken by the group and they managed to complete 48 miles as a group. Service users Orla and Lili also contributed to the challenge by riding their bikes on the trip.

Jess May, Therapy Assistant said “I thought it was brilliant to see both staff and service users getting involved in something fun together as well as raising awareness of the great work BIRT has achieved in its 25 years”.

Stu Heron, Fitness Therapist said “What a successful day, I would really like to take the opportunity to expand this into a regular walking group.”
