A big congratulations to Sarah as today's session marked her 100th good deed with GoodGym!! She loves getting her hands dirty and this was the perfect task to celebrate that achievement. She even got a cheeky Vegan Doughnut for her efforts! Go Sarah. We can't wait to see you in your new 100 Tshirt! This Saturday's mission was to help Martha at The Talbot Village Trust. The woodland on the estate had become very overgrown and we were were given the task of of clearing away the overgrowth. Using the loppers and the saws provided the group got to work cutting back the brambles and the overgrown Laurel. It was an incredibly satisfying task clearing space for the beautiful oak trees,allowing them room to flourish. After a good hour of hard work, Martha treated the team to a hot cuppa and sweet treats, she is so good to her volunteers!! After refreshments we got straight back to it, what a great team effort, in just three hours we smashed it! Thanks to Lea and Eleanor for some action shots and a big shout out to everyone else who sacrificed their lazy Saturday morning. You really are the best of the best!! Hopefully it won't be last time that we help The Talbot Village Trust. It's been a pleasure to meet Martha and we wish her all the best with her work at The Trust. Next session is this Monday at Hope Housing, so hopefully see you there!
