It's the coldest day of the winter. It's just started raining. Your task has just cancelled on you as there were crossed wires about timings. Everything is telling you to cancel and stay home in the warm - problem is GG Cardiff & Vale isnt listening!

A backup deed was hastily scheduled with Rumney Partnership Hub, to clear the Hub grounds of litter and head out to the surrounding streets to litter pick.

Lucy (getting in the kms before Ibiza) Nathan and Darren (keen for kms toward their 1000km target for the year) set off east from the city centre to meet up with Fiona, Charlotte, Marie and Aimee, who had made their way separately. The unofficial GGC&V headwear was greatly appreciated given the weather (you can bag yourself one at the next GG group run ready for your own winter good deeds).

Not disheartened by the weather and initial cancelled task the group quick made progress picking up (almost every) piece of litter in sight. The streets almost sparkled once the group had finished with them.

Bang Bang Bang goes the starters gun - as the group raced off home, with another good deed complete
