It was an emotional rollercoaster as 4 Goodgym runners from the Welsh Capital donned their t-shirts to help fundraise.

These 4 runners could take on any task with their can-do attitude as they grabbed their buckets and shouted at the top of their lungs (well Pete did).

In return, they got to see the wonderful musical - Jesus Christ Superstar. From laughing to crying to Herod (AKA Trump) stripping and doing cabaret - that got them going to raise money outside.

With Lydia and her 100 tops on, they braved the cold conditions (it was mild) and hit the ‘strip’.

“Anyone spare any change for macmillan? Every penny make a difference to so many lives” they chanted with passion behind every breath they took.

And that passion was with Andrew who couldn’t resist seeing the superstar in person... the real Jesus Christ... IN PERSON!!

Oh and... on the way out, he even got asked when he last had sex in a truly dramatic fashion..! (That’s a tale for the Glassworks on Tuesday!)

Pete eventually got a pint in return for going along to a drama practice...

Big thanks to Lucy for organising such a fun task and we can’t wait to see how far the money will go to help people with cancer.

Big shoutout to Everyman Theatre Cardiff for an outstanding show which could have easily got to the West End. That would have knocked Andrew Lloyd Webber’s socks off.

The charity? Why Macmillan of course! Who are they I hear you ask? Well they’re the amazing people that help people with cancer - emotionally, financially and physically from the diagnosis.
