St Fillans Claim Street Tag Glory

The people living at St Fillans Care Home in Colchester were presented with a trophy this week after winning the Street Tag competition hosted by FaNs (Friends and Neighbours Network).

Street Tag is an app that encourages people to take part in physical exercise by rewarding them with points when they collect virtual tags. The app also converts their steps into points and the person/team with the most points at the end of the competition period wins a prize!

The people living at St Fillans have been interacting with the app using devices at the home to earn as many points as they can. There was lots of competition as many other care home groups and members of the community were taking part in the challenge, but St Fillans managed to top the leader board with a whopping 600,000 points!

This week, the team at St Fillans were presented with their award by Tony from the FaNs network. They were awarded with a special trophy for their effort and congratulated for topping the leader board.

The people living at St Fillan’s enjoy getting involved in events that involve the community, so taking part in this recent challenge has been fun for everyone. They were even more excited to win the competition and be announced as the Street Tag winners.
