Ten Goodgymers ran and walked to Earlsdon to deliver some leaflets for a Myton Hospice charity ball. We met inside Coventry Boys and Girls club tonight as it was tipping it down. Deb had very kindly made homemade cakes as we had a double celebration tonight, it was Joe's birthday and Laura D's 100th deed and she had made special ones especially or us - so thoughtful! Laura P also brought along a card for Joe for all of us to sign which was a lovely idea.

Thankfully by the time we were setting off the rain had cleared so we did the warm up outside in the fresh air and then set off for Earlsdon. We met up with the walkers and poor Joe was soaked through after the rain had caught him on his walk to the meeting point. Deb had boxed the birthday cake and ran very carefully ran holding it all the way, once we were all together we sang Happy Birthday to Joe and presented him with his card and cake :)

We split into 2 teams and made our way down the first road, one team one side of the road and one the other. As there was 5 of us on each side of the road it was maybe a few too many so Lil suggested the teams take different roads to make it more efficient and speed things up a bit. This worked much better, we got into the swing of things and the piles of leaflets were shrinking fast. By the time we were ready to leave we had managed to deliver around 600 leaflets, which was fantastic!

It was a lovely evening, finished off with the yummy homemade cake, chocolates and a bag of plums that James had brought along from his plum tree, happy days!
