I am very excited to announce that after two years of operating from a hotel due to COVID-19 restrictions, the American International Church's cold weather shelter is returning to the church this winter!

A lot of work has been going into restarting the shelter, and we are looking forward to helping out again.

Now, more than ever, they need your help! The shelter will be open every Wednesday night from November through March, and will be following their typical pattern of dinner, overnight and a light breakfast, all while offering their usual warmth and hospitality. That's a lot of meals to be prepped, duvets to be stuffed and dishes to be cleaned.

We'll be helping out for their first couple of sessions back at the church to help make the beds (up to 18). We'll be popping back regularly to help contribute to keeping people warm and fed through an increasingly difficult winter.

Group Run will meet at 6:45 outside The Living Centre we’ll aim to leave off 6:55pm. Unfortunately there is no bag storage or opportunity to change so please come ready to run!

If you'd like to go to direct to the task please meet us outside the American International Church 79a Tottenham Ct Rd, London, W1T 4TD. We should arrive around 7:05/10

Please note we will not come back to the start point this week as we head straight to our festive social after the task. Please do join us…

Sign up by 6:00pm on Wednesday 7th December so we can let Pete know who to expect.

Walkable

You will be able to join a group walking to the task if you'd prefer not to run.

Options are available to run between 2km and 4km in total

Remember that we run/walk to and from the task, so you'll only be running/walking for half this distance in one go.

This is a standard GoodGym group run. If you're worried about any aspect of the session, contact us.

There's space to change and leave bags and toilets. 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 The St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre, and The St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre and GoodGym will not be held liable for any losses or damages.
