Mind over Mattock
16 GoodGymers made their way 3.1km to help the Marsha Phoenix Memorial Trust in Lewisham.

It was an exciting evening as we headed to Marsha Phoenix Trust to tackle some big tasks in the garden. Marsha Phoenix Trust has been a regular monthly community mission for the past couple of years and it was great that we had the chance to be visiting as a big group. And a big group we were!!
Just one minor hurdle to get over before we arrived at the task and that was the massive hill leading up to Hilly Fields.
Sue was there to greet us at Marsha Phoenix Trust and first job was to bring the brown garden waste bins through multiple doors to the garden.
There were plenty of tasks for everyone to get stuck into including weeding the pathways, mowing the lawn, cutting back brambles, digging up trees (or using the mattock), sawing a tree and sweeping.
We got so much done - it was amazing to see the difference!! We were also very grateful for the end of task jammy dodgers - thanks Sue!
We're hopefully going to be heading back in August to tackle some more big tasks. The monthly community missions will be continuing in the meantime if anyone fancies a return trip.
