At the first session colleagues went head-to-head in sporting challenges including table tennis, virtual canoeing, archery and boxing.

Fitness experts were also on hand to chat to staff about health, wellbeing and fitness.

Lisa Burns, Head of HR at B. Braun said: “These events provide our staff with an opportunity to get moving in a variety of fun ways.”
