Sutton Council Launches New BetterPoints Reward Programme

Danny Norman - 27 June 2018

The Sutton Plan with BetterPoints

Welcome to 'The Sutton Plan with BetterPoints'. 

This initiative is aimed at the residents and workers of Sutton, where you can earn rewards for helping improve the air quality within the borough.

The programme launched in July 2018 and is in partnership with Sutton Council.

Once you step outside your home you can earn BetterPoints for walking, cycling, running, scooting or even taking the bus on your commute to work or way to school. Then use your BetterPoints to reward yourself, by selecting any of these rewards, or donate them to any of the charities from this list. If you spot a charity you'd like to see on the BetterPoints website let us know by getting in touch here.

This programme is open to residents of Sutton plus people who live close to the borough boundary.
