7 GoodGymers made their way 6.3km to help the Oasis Cardiff in Cardiff.
- Tuesday, 22nd of March 2022
- Led by Michael
Tonight we had an opportunity to get a good run in for our task, SEVEN goodgym volunteers met to take to the streets and distribute flyers for Oasis.
Catrin Finch, from Llanon on the west coast of Wales, is the most gifted classical harp virtuoso of her generation, grounded in prodigious early achievements and intense classical training, and serving as Royal Harpist to H.R.H. The Prince of Wales in her early twenties. Catrin has performed with many of the world’s leading orchestras; she has also achieved chart success with her number 1 rendition of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, and has recorded for the world’s leading classical labels.
After Catrin had heard about the support that Oasis offer refugees and asylum seekers in Wales, she kindly offered to run a fundraiser event for them. Oasis Cardiff and Oasis One World Choir are honoured to invite Catrin to The Gate for a performance for the local and wider community.
We all met outside our usual start / end location - Sport Wales National Centre, and enjoying the sunshine and the fact that we were starting in the light we made our way through the local park. Over Bridges, up steps, it was a nice workout making our way to the Gate (A lovely community Centre for varied performances and art exhibitions). A quick photo check and time to split up the leaflets, runners all heading off in different directions to look work up some encouragement for what looks to be a great event.
Once all the flyers were gone, we got together and made our way back. This time we had to head through town, making our final run a little longer - but that's the point of our Tuesdays, active travel, volunteering and fun with friends.
Come join us next week!
