BBFA get active for RED January to support Sport in Mind
At the start of the year, members of BBFA staff took part in RED January - attempting to be active everyday, to promote the benefits of physical activity for mental wellbeing and to support our charity partners, Sport in Mind. 

RED January is nationwide movement that exists to empower everyone to move for their mental wellbeing during the winter, a time of year where as a nation we tend to be less active, and experience low moods or increased depressive symptoms. The challenge is to move every day during January, to beat the winter blues away.

The choice of activity is up to the individual and can be something you already love doing (that you commit to doing more often or for longer) or something totally new! Across the month, twelve members of the team here at BBFA attempted to walk, run, cycle, take part in organised sport and more, to get active for RED January.

The total is now in... and the teams combined efforts saw them move the equivalent of... 


A fantastic effort by the team and a great benchmark for next year's effort! ;)

The official charity partner of RED January is Sport in Mind, the Berkshire based charity that uses sport to empower and improve people’s lives.

Launched at the start of the 2022/23 season, Sport in Mind are also the official charity partners of Berks & Bucks FA. To be able to support our charity partners close to home in a national campaign has been brilliant and we're looking forward to continuing to support them throughout the remainder of the season and beyond.
