Last night we ran, 2.2km to assist Croydon Refugee Day Centre.

We welcomed Louise back to another session, we must be doing somthing good in Croydon to entice her so far south, either way it was great having her along.

When we areived Simon was there to greet us, he explained he had a listnof task that was left for us to complete.

  • First we searched for all the empty hangers on the clothes rails, this gave an idication of how many items of clothing had been given out during the day. There were many empty hangers we didnt count them as we were trying to see how much of the list we could complete.

  • Next up we went through bags of sorted clothes to seperate clothes for 2 years and below. We were about to finish this task when Simon returned reminding us of our our KitKat break. We were back to the normal KitKats this week, I'll make sure next year Halloween, we are back they for the special KatKat.

  • Then we were tasked with the big one, going through the boxes of clothes 3 years and above, to remove all the summer clothes. Yes this is a massive task which will have us sorting for a while with future tasks. With an eye on the clock we managed a to sort a few boxes before stopping to put away the racks of clothes into the room.

Louise reminded us about Goodgym London monthly drinks happening on Thursday, fancy meeting like minded folks and expanding your Goodgym friends network Click here for more info.

Its November so its not too soon to say it Xmas party/meal come and join us as we celebrate our achievements of the past 12 months.

Hope to see you at the next group run to create more memories.
