Anderson puts best foot forward with Fitbits for Faversham

Anderson has donated a number of Fitbit fitness tracking devices to the prize draw of a lottery scheme, which is taking place in the community of one of their latest developments.

The developer is currently building 330 homes, a heritage hub and an expansive country park at Faversham Lakes, Kent. The gadgets were donated to the Faversham and District Community Lottery for its draw on 3 April.

Chris Criscione, Anderson Communications Officer, said they were thrilled to be able to continue their engagement with the local community, which has been instrumental in the planning stages of the build.

“We are proud to have supported the community lottery in Faversham as it looks to further support residents and local groups at such a difficult time,” he added.

“Our emphasis at Faversham Lakes has always been about room to grow, room to play and room to live, so it made sense that we would encourage steps to improve health and wellbeing by donating Fitbits to the bank of lottery prizes up for grabs.

“We hope that the winners visit Faversham Lakes Country Park when it opens in the near future to get their steps up!”

The Mayor of Faversham, Councillor Alison Reynolds BEM, said: “During this pandemic we have all come to realise just how important exercise, particularly walking in open spaces, is for us. Fitbits are a fantastic prize and our thanks go to Anderson for their support with the launch of our new community lottery.  I would love to know the number of steps I will be taking, walking from home to the Lakes!”

The lottery costs residents £1 per week to take part, with 60p going toward good causes in and around Faversham. The top prize is £25,000 in cash.

The scheme supports organisations including Faversham and District Community Fund, Plastic Free Faversham, Faversham Strike Force Football Club, Cinque Rowing and Happy Endings Rescue.

Also on the list is the choral society, Faversham Pools and swim club, Friends of Faversham Cottage Hospital & Community Medical Centres and The Mayor of Faversham’s Charity Fund.
