Goodgym Cardiff headed to the Great Welsh Cider and Beer Festival this Wednesday - not as a social - but to help the event charity partners Macmillan collect spare change and donations in their buckets

One wonderful lady was Braving the Shave and cutting her flowing hair. Shaving it all off to encourage generous donations. Big kudos to the guy who grabbed the mic to proclaim he was setting down a twenty on the stage and encouraging fellow beer enthusiasts to do likewise.

It proved one of the toughest community missions to date - not through physical exertion but in the torment of locking four GG runners in a room full of Wales' finest beer and them not being able to touch a drop!
