It was a short and sweet task this evening as we dropped a further 100 leaflets to show support for our four legged friends at Guide Dogs NE. They’re on the hunt for some new foster pawrents to help look after all the good boys and girls they work with.

We were raring to go on what is the first GoodGym of Spring and it was a calm evening for the task. Paul led the runners while Aimee and I met at the task, just next to Recyke Y Bike in Byker. We made short work of the leaflet delivery- just 20 mins and the job was done. This area is a busy community with loads of houses and perfect for this type of task. Carrie mentioned what a great task leafleting would be for a beginner as it’s a laid back way of getting your steps in and makes a big difference.

So with that in mind there’s a few more leaflet tasks coming up- the third Guide Dogs leaflet drop being this coming Wednesday in Gosforth with Louise.

We finished off with a classic GoodGym workout- hill technique and sprints. Everyone worked so hard at this and it was so good to see everyone encouraging each other too.
