On Wednesday evening a group of Goodgym runners fought their way through the crowds of shoppers, on their way to decorate the Tenovus shop front window ready for Christmas.  Seven Cardiff goodgym runners were joined by three from Bristol to make the perfect 10 – ten of us helping out at Tenovus!!

The group set about decorating the shop. Alison and Deborah dressed a mannequin ready for a Christmas jumper day – Anthony took inspiration and bought a Christmas jumper from the store ready for work on Thursday. Mikey, Nathan, Danica, Lucy, Martin, and Ellen tackled the Christmas tree, tying strings for the baubles (or failing to tie  in Martins case!) and arranging a display of presents around the base. Meanwhile, Aimee set about redressing  a tall, dark and headless stranger - his abs were something to behold she informed the group.

As the task started to wind down, Alison, Nathan and Lucy took on the challenge of untangling Santa sleigh bells – while the rest of the group ate chocolate, heard about the history of the charity and pretended to not be irritated by the incessant jingling.

The staff at Tenovus were delighted with the work we’d done, and the ten of us were pleased to have been able to help. Ten of us gathered outside for one last picture at Tenovus and departed our separate ways.
