EDC shortlisted for healthy living award

Ebbsfleet Development Corporation has been shortlisted for an award for its Get Active app, which inspires residents to live a healthy lifestyle through exercise.

Kent Sport, backed by Sport England and Kent County Council, has shortlisted the app in its annual Kudos Awards which recognises people and organisations in the county encouraging sport and physical activity.

The app, powered by BetterPoints, allows participants to earn shopping vouchers or donate to charity through their activity.

Since the app launched last year it has around 1000 users who have burned more than eight million calories covering almost 150,000km and recorded 110,000 activities.

The app was launched by the NHS-backed Healthy New Towns project, and the award winner will be announced in October.
