Tonight (or it may be 'yesterday' by the time you read this...) four GoodGymers said 'hello, goodbye' and got their own 'ticket to ride' for a 'magical mystery tour' of Derby city centre. The fab four decided to 'come together' and 'carry that weight' of empty food packaging, food waste, torn up pages from a 'paperback writer' and general rubbish that hadn't been put in bins by the original owner. 'All together now' and 'with a little help from my friends' they responded to the call of 'help!' and collected four full bags of rubbish keeping the streets that little bit tidier....they didn't quite make it as far as 'Abbey Road' on this night though.

After a 'hard day's night' the group decided to 'let it be' and take 'the long and winding road' to 'get back' home before anyone could say 'here comes the sun' wondering how much more litter could be collected if there were 'eight days (in) a week.'

GoodGym volunteers have once again proved that 'all you need is love' to come together to make a difference in the community, find something that needs improving and say 'we can work it out.'

Thank you to Mandy, Lewis and Ashley for helping out with litter picking in the city centre this evening.
