No Gym, but a FareShare of Good going on
1 GoodGymer made their way to help the FareShare West Midlands in Birmingham.
- Saturday, 23rd of November 2019
- Led by John Hayes
It was our chance to join in on the three day food collection for FareShare. I decided not to run after the efforts this morning at parkrun gave my hips reasons to send pain messages. Jonny had some free time so joined the shift at the last minute, again choosing not to run as he has a race in the morning. So fitness’ loss was public transport’s gain, even though there was a train strike on. We joined Maria and her friend on the 3-6 shift, which was a bit busy with lots of shoppers mixed in with quite well lubricated patrons of the German Market outside. Which meant that we were asked if there were any toilets more times than we would like to remember. That being said, there was some wonderful generosity in Birmingham on a soggy, ram packed afternoon. Which kept the spirits lifted even while waiting ages for the bus home.
