Last night's GoodGym Stockport group run saw 6 GoodGymers getting trollied down at Re:dish, a local charity. We welcomed back Jo, on her second task and also two Stockport newbies from Tom and Meera! We had a 'mixed bag' of Stockport oldies, newbies and tourists!

Our task took us back to the days of Supermarket Sweep, with Morrisons, Reddish, kindly lending 8 of their gleaming silver trolleys to enable us to help Re:dish to move their donated Summer stock to a local Safe Store storage facility.

Our run began at Life Leisure Houldsworth, with Kirsty and Pete energetically adding distance to their run by running to the start point! Bonus miles!

We set off in convoy to collect the trolleys and donated goods, roughly 60 bags full, from Re:dish. Our task was to trolley dash the good to the local Safe Store facility, ready for them to be brought into the shops for the summer season. What a trolley dash it was!

Once at the storage facility, we tactically created a chain and slide converyorbelt to manoeuvre the bags up the unit.

We had bags of fun getting trollied!.
