Ebbsfleet Development Corporation has been shortlisted for an award for its Get Active app.

The app, powered by BetterPoints, encourages users in and around Ebbsfleet Garden City, to be more active and in return they can earn shopping  vouchers or donate to charity.

Kent Sport, which is 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 that are changing lives through sport and physical activity.

Since launching last year, our app has nearly 1000 users who have burned more than 8 million calories covering almost 150,000km and recorded  110,000 activities.

And nearly a quarter of users say visits to the GP have become less frequent.

The app was launched by our NHS-backed Healthy New Towns project and has been one of the most successful launches of an app by BetterPoints

The winner will be announced in October.
