Community mission

Christmas Tree Crews! 2021 edition!

A Covid safe version of one of GG Islington's favourite tasks!


Since London is currently under Tier 4 restrictions, we are not able to commit to our annual Christmas collection group runs.

However, we can still help out in pairs, in accordance to Government guidance.

Sign up here if you are interested in going on a Christmas Tree collection run or walk, and use the comment box below to connect with a Christmas Tree collection partner!

What to look out for

Covid Test and Trace

To keep everyone safe GoodGym has signed up to the NHS test and trace service. We will pass on your contact details only if they ask for it.

The GoodGym central team will also be in contact if we are made aware that anyone attending this session tests positive in the days afterwards.

Age Restriction

GoodGym welcomes anyone aged 18 or over. If you are under 18 then you will be unable to participate in any GoodGym activity

Make sure you've read our general guidelines for safety when running and at a task.

This event is organised by your Taskforce, a group of experienced GoodGym members in your area, they are not responsible for your safety. You should feel confident to participate in the event as it is described and you do so at your own risk.

Hey all! Feel free to add your photos / write-ups to the report, but then click 'Save as Draft' rather than 'Publish' - that way our run reports won't overwrite this sign-up page until the mission is over on Jan 20th!

I was going to do this with Jackie but not been well enough
