So Mulch Fun
30 runners ran 3.0km to help the Norwich City Centre Volunteer Gardeners in Norwich.
- Monday, 24th of February 2020
- Led by Steven Hitcham
Compared to last week's long one, we had a nice short run/walk this week.
Bryony was completing her 10th good deed and Darren has joined the magic 100 club, by completing his 100th good deed.
We gave a big welcome to Hiromasa who was participating in his 1st GoodGym experience.
There was even some GoodGym tourism with Craig visiting us all the way from Exeter!
Katy and Stephen led the runners down to Norwich Train Station while I led the walkers due to my cold (cue your little violins).
On arrival there was a massive pile of Mulch that needed transporting and spreading across the rose beds. Having looked at the pile you'd think "there's no way they'll get all that cleared"... well think again as every single particle was cleared from the pile and onto the rose beds.
We even had Bill and Catherine doing stints on the road crossing as lollipop-man and lollipop-woman respectively.
After a very physical demanding task it was time to head back and some finished the evening off with a pub trip to celebrate Darren's 100th.
Next week we're making Easter Hampers for Break Charity.

I'm the Trainer for GoodGym Norwich. I love running and have led a lot of running groups in the Norfolk area, none as fun as the GG family.
