We're back and we will not let the threat of rain stop us, 10 goodgymers met up raring to go out there and help another good cause. Tonight, our journey was to the wonderful YMCA shop on Colchester avenue, the tasks to sort donations ready for sale, make a display for the Sci-Fi books that was 'Out of this World' and hand and display the clothes all ready on the rails.
We hope you enjoyed the experience
We made our way on one of our longer runs to the second pick up point, chatting all the way about our weekends gone by, brutal work out classes and races we had taken part in. A quick stop at the second point before 'running up that hill', a great workout for the thighs and a great Kate Bush song to boot.
We were welcomed at the YMCA, not by the Village People but the Manager Liam. A quick thirst break to top up our hydration levels before splitting into groups and getting to volunteering. 30 minutes passed in no time at all (except for the 30 minutes) and clothes had been put on display, multiple bags had been sorted (those not for sale were being recycled, including the bag of many, many bras). And finally the display of Sci-Fi books was set up and glorious enough for our final group photo.
Time to say thanks and head off back to our start, a stretch or two - which turned into everyone showcasing their favourtie stretch until we had all tried them, and then a social in the local and chance to get each other some more. The conversation of choice tonight, what else - Eurovision.
Join us next week for our 5th Birthday Celebration Activity.
