Slinging In The Rain
19 runners ran 3.0km to help the Brixton Road Youth Centre in Lambeth.
- Tuesday, 1st of October 2019
- Led by Mark Gilyead
19 absolute champs braved the weather for a night of chucking out and lucking out (with the weather - most of the time...).
George lead the long run and Nicky lead the direct route. We had a few near misses with puddles/reckless drivers but the rain still held off...
We arrived at Brixton Road Youth Centre to be greeted by Sharon who showed us to the containers out the back as well as a big skip we had to fill.
Time to deploy the GoodGym conveyor belt.
Tim & Shauna and Nicky & David grabbed junk from the containers and passed it along the line to be chucked into the skip. This was stuff passed through generations of owners of the Youth Centre so there were some serious finds.

- A large VHS collection
When the skip was full, we bid farewell and hit the road, just in time for a spot of drizzle!
After a quick stretch we were treated by some phenomenal bakes:
- David brought double helpings of fruit bread with butter and ROSE & STRAWBERRY jam!
- Phil baked some delicious jam and custard tarts (NB: no soggy bottom)
- and George provided a subLIME G&T cake.
"YUM" - all of us
Join us next week for more good deeds, good bakes and good running. We'll be at the Portico Gallery and Styles Gardens. For more details and to sign up, click here.
