Pick 'n' mix
8 GoodGymers made their way to help their local community in Windsor and Maidenhead.
- Friday, 22nd of September 2023
GoodGym were delighted to be invited to take part in Maidenhead United's Macmillan Coffee Morning, held at the Maidenhead Athletic Club clubhouse. The event included our litter pick, cake, a big walking football tournament, cake, running around the track, and did I mention the cake!? Moreover, it was a wonderful opportunity to connect with other community groups, friends old and new, and VIPs like our MP and our mayor.
Well done to GoodGymers Diya, Tessa, Anna, Gillian, Nicola and Mark, who signed up to come along. It was also great to welcome MAC members Pauline and Jay. Also a special mention to Sheila, who couldn't join the litter pick but came along and flew the GoodGym flag during the earlier part of the morning.
We played a game of litter pick Bingo, and it was both sad and impressive that the majority of participants completed their cards. Not surprising though I suppose, since we had January Challenge Bingo stars Diya and Tessa in our midst! Perhaps I need to add some more obscure items to the card for next time. Who new we would find half a Lego person, a shoe and two buckets? While we worked, we also got a good workout lugging our bags of litter around, and had a good chinwag too - it's the stuff that GoodGym dreams are made of.
Thanks to Helen, Raisie and the team from Maidenhead United Community Trust for welcoming us along and well done GoodGym team!
