Could be a South Banksy?
14 runners ran to help the Young Thugs in York.

On a not so red hot, chilli November evening a little mix-ed band of Goodgymers assembled at South Bank Social club to help Young Thugs finish off some painting of their newly renovated studio spaces.
Captain flash aka task leader Katie and the furious 5 were set off in one room painting the floors and giving pillars around the edge of the room a second coat. With the enthusiasm shown by the roller twins Nicky and Emma tackling the floor from the middle out, if we were weren't against the clock before, we certainly were now.
The rest of the mötley crüe set to work painting a bare naked plastered room (after carefully masking all the sockets and light fitting first, we're not the Animals) and soon they were ready to rock and roller.
Meanwhile in the other room Katie found the party setting for the lighting causing a slight panic at the disco but things were only taken a step too far (literally) when an enthusiastic Michal walked straight onto the freshly painted floor - the daft punk.
In a blur an hour of madness had transpired and the joy division in room two had made an impressive transformation whereas the faces in the other room had nearly reached the doors before the paint ran out.
Having not made a public enemy with our painting skills we left our work to cure before (radio) heading home.
