It's been an extremely difficult Xmas for everyone this. No more so than for older people in Care Homes who have been unable to see their families for the last 9 months. It really is heartbreaking.

That's why we wanted to do something for some of the care homes/housing with care we've visited in the past, as we couldn't visit them in person this year to play games or sing carols. Instead, we sent the residents at Springdale a Xmas Card, some of which were made by our members.

It was great to see so many GoodGymers get involved with this task, some of who were from other GoodGym areas across the UK. Emma made a card for Vera, who is 107 year's old!

These tasks have brought a smile to everyone's face, Merry Christmas to all of you.

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.
