Southwark News

  • An amazing weekend for racing - Emily ran her first marathon, Girija smashed her half marathon goal, Emma ran her first half marathon (first ever race!), Harry ran his first half marathon and Nichola ran the Royal Parks half. Blimey! An incredible story from York marathon where GoodGym York supported Sean, a key part of their community with terminal cancer who may not run a marathon again. Read about this amazing story here.

  • 1st December we are hosting the GoodGym London Christmas Do at The Old Library on Burgess Park. We'll be having a decoration-making party. Watch this space! Sign up for the party here.

  • Fancy a long run? Run with GoodGymers on 17th November. It's a ring around Southwark and there'll be pizza and beer at the end - sign up here.

  • Next week we're varnishing the floor at Theatre Deli! It's a 6km round trip - sign up here. Don't forget Halloween we're dressing up hooray!

That's enough of the business

Last night we gathered at Old Spike and after a little confusion related to Tobias Menzies (long story ask me next week) we set off. Just under 3km there taking a route with a mean gradient we got to Crisis where a tired Anca was delighted to see us. She'd been on her own all day so was thrilled we were coming to help out. We split into groups:

  • Tagging donations

  • Dressing mannequins

  • Organising the shop floor

  • Tidying the back room

  • Tagging up jewellry

A big hello to Ruby, Phoebe and Jeff who joined us for the first time last night. Great job!

It was a lot of tasks to get through and whilst we didn't quite finish tagging up all the donations and jewellry we got loads done which will make life so much easier for Anca and will mean great things for the shop.

Great work team!

On Halloween the shop is hosting a musical evening - canapes, prosecco and Musicians Against Homelessness. It'll be an amazing evening, you can go along after our task (although we'll be hitting up Batch ourselves...!). Check it out here.

Looking forward to seeing you next week.
