Salford firm using money to kept fit

The Champion, an accounting firm based in Salford, has been given £35,744 in
lottery money to pay for a Salsa teacher to teach classes at its headquarters.

The firm undertook the classes as part of a health and lifestyle assessment,
the BBC online reported.

It claims the Salsa classes and other health activities it is offering to its
employees are aimed at removing the image of accountants as overweight,
middle-aged men in braces.

Sport England, which distributed the money, said this investment and others
in the region, were part of a ‘targeted programme in the North West to encourage
employers to put more emphasis on sport and physical activity’.
