Tonight we were a little thin on the ground, most likely due to train issues, but don’t worry we still had six very keen GoodGymer’s good to go! To make things even more exciting we had a journalist from the Birmingham Mail, who was ready to interview a few of our troops!

Once all the media stuff was done we headed out into the cold, most of us wearing our winter kit, apart from Liam who was just in his shorts and t-shirt and he’s not even from the north! We headed on our way with a bunch of oranges kindly donated by Chloe.

The group ran around the city with the oranges and giving out details of SIFA Fireside too the homeless. We did a nice circular route taking us back towards Colmore Row. Once done Liam took the reins taking us a slightly different route back, via the back of the Jewellery Quarter and onto 1000 Trades. That was a nice just over 5k completed for the evening.

Next week we will be out doing good again, it would be great if you could join us sign up here.
