A Better Medway’s Healthy New Year campaign has received over 1500 health pledges since its launch in November, and there is now only a few days left for people to make a pledge for the chance to win an iPad 3.

During the last 10 weeks, residents have vowed to improve their health and well being in 2013 by making a health pledge. Pledges include giving up smoking, eating healthier foods, cooking more meals at home and getting more active.

Once someone has made their pledge they have the opportunity to join one of A Better Medway’s free health programmes to help them achieve their goal. A Better Medway also announced this month that they would reward pledgers with a Free Swim voucher, which can be used at any Medway Council pool. Pledgers can claim their free swim by contacting A Better Medway.

Other prizes on offer are a trip to Diggerland, a signed Gillingham FC football, a trip to the Historic Dockyard in Chatham and free gym passes. Winners will be decided by a prize draw next month (February). You can make your health pledge online at www.abettermedway.co.uk/healthynewyear, or at Hempstead Valley Shopping Centre on Thursday, January 31.

Entries will be received until 5pm on Thursday, January 31 2013.
