2 runners ran to help the Phoenix Hub Mile Cross (formally Phoenix Centre) in Norwich.

Led by Robert Organ

The Phoenix Centre was our destination on a lovely bright Tuesday evening. I arrived and was given instructions of what was needed, a tidy up all around the edge of the building which had become very overgrown. I waited the arrival of a new Goodgym member on their first Community Mission. Jayne arrived on her cycle, I was pleased to see she had brought her own tools., as the centre hadn’t got the required equipment needed for this task, result! Introducing ourselves I discovered our new member was the Mum of one of Norwich’s original members Rob who’s a Goodgymer in Leeds now, welcome Jayne Riley mum of Rob, we’ll look after her Rob. After an hour of hard work we admired our handy work, spoke to the Centre admin about emailing us to-return another evening. Photos taken, we said our goodbyes and ran/cycled to our homes
