For each walk, wheel, run, ride or public transport journey you make you can earn BetterPoints. These can be redeemed for vouchers (including District Towns Gift Cards, which are accepted at over 100 local businesses) or donated to charity.

There are also £500 worth of District Towns Gift Cards available as prizes for referring friends and taking part in challenges between now and 20th February 2022.
