Get Walking, Get Cycling, Get Moving and be rewarded with the brands you love.
With the free BetterPoints app, people in Buckinghamshire can earn vouchers for healthy activities. Win in December's daily Christmas Countdown draws and weekly Gift of Giving draws.
BetterPoints are rewards for being active and making other positive changes, such as giving up smoking and getting support to lose weight.
You can earn BetterPoints and prizes for:
- taking the bus
- walking or running
- visiting a leisure centre
- attending health and wellbeing events
This year our Christmas Countdown is all about kindness.
Throughout December we've got weekly Gift of Giving prize draws. Every friend you refer will earn you an entry into the draw for 10,000 BetterPoints (£10) - plus a £20 donation to the local charity of your choice. We'll pick four winners on Fridays 8, 15 and 22 December.
By giving BetterPoints to friends, family and colleagues, you could win for yourself and your favourite local cause!
We're also giving away £50 in BetterPoints in our daily Christmas Countdown draws. Every car-free trip of half a mile or more will earn you an entry into the draw, up to four entries per day. Walk, wheel, cycle and use public transport as much as you can to maximise your chances of winning!
There’ll be thirteen winners every day! That’s 328 winners in December. Enjoy your car-free festive travel - and good luck!

In Buckinghamshire, 1 in 5 adults are currently inactive. This means doing less than 30 minutes of physical activity a week.
Health experts warn that a lack of physical activity can lead to conditions such as:
- type 2 diabetes
- heart disease
- some cancers
Even small lifestyle changes can bring huge health benefits – as little as 10 minutes of daily movement can lead to better health.
Making and sustaining lifestyle changes can be hard, but the free BetterPoints app makes it easier to get started and get active.
The app not only rewards and supports you to make achievable long-term changes to your lifestyle, but also keeps you up to date with local events in your community and offers prize draws.
