Please note that this group run has been cancelled.

GROAD or Get Rid of and Donate are a fantastic organisation who collect donations from the public and distribute them to those who need it most. Currently they are helping people through the cost of living crisis, providing clothes and supplies to rough sleepers for the winter and giving donations away for the festive season.

This week's task is to help out at GROAD's Shurgard Storage and pack toys & books into gift sets for children and distribute to vulnerable families from schools in Lambeth & Southwark.

This is a truly festive task which will bring a lot of joy to young people and their families so don't wait - get signed up and let's get fit doing good. โ›„ ๐Ÿ’™ ๐ŸŽ…

UPDATE 12/12 The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice see Met Office Warning for your area. The warning started yesterday, with today being at its peak, and gradually fades throughout the week, currently ending on Friday 16th December.

Due to the concerns around the snow settling or icing, there may be an increased risk of slips and falls while traveling to sessions, and while completing tasks, during this time. To mitigate against these risks we advise you to:

  • Check back in the listing to see whether it will go ahead tomorrow afternoon.
  • Be prepared for colder than usual temperatures.
    • Please wrap up warm and bring additional layers
  • Pay attention to the pavement and road surfaces and slow down while running, walking, and cycling ( see the Met Warning for guidance on cycling in snow/ice) https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/warnings-and-advice/seasonal-advice/travel/cycling-in-winter
  • Look out for icy patches on the ground
  • Please do not to attend if you feel unwell or not confident to do so.

Hello, I will be walking to the task direct at St. Faith's, due to my current left knee pain.

Sorry to hear that Michael! Please note the change of location in the listing - we are now headed to Shurgard Self Storage on Milkwood Road SE24 OHL - we are NOT going to St Faith's. Please meet us at Shurgard.

There's space to change and leave bags and a toilet. We're not planning to do anything purposefully dangerous, but GoodGym takes no responsibility for your safety during group runs, you participate at your own risk. Participants accept full responsibility for items stored at Papa's Park, and Papa's Park & GoodGym will not be held liable for any losses / damages.
