**5 GoodGym members ran to Feeding Coventry and completed an assortment of different jobs. **

Luckily, the rain held off tonight and we took a steady and familiar run up to Feeding Coventry's base. After a bit of clarification about the tasks that needed to be completed, we set to work completing all those sorts of odd jobs that often get put to the bottom of the list when services are busy completing the essential work with the people they support.

Firstly, we gave all the plants a good watering in the polytunnel. Carrying water backwards and forwards in different containers was a great work out to get us started. It was great to see all the veggies growing and the garden area developing so well.

Our second job was a cupboard sort out; always a popular task with Coventry GoodGym, especially when Debora is on the case getting everything organised. Laura and John set about organising the parts of a gazebo whilst Robert tackled a troublesome garden hose. Debora and Lil gave the rest of the cupboard a good tidy and sort out. Before very long, things were looking a lot tidier and we were ready to take the return trip back to the city centre.
Once we made it back to the centre, we had time for a quick cool down, updates on what's coming up Coventry GoodGym and a little celebration of a GoodGym milestone. Great work on the longer run tonight everyone! Don't forget your head torches and bright clothing as the evenings start to pull in during the coming weeks.
