We to(y)tally nailed this one!!!
14 runners ran 4.0km to help the Oldfield baptist toddler group in Bath.
- Tuesday, 25th of February 2020
- Led by Emily Jones
GoodGym Bath ran to Oldfield Baptist church to give their toys a thorough steamin' and cleanin'! The toys are used by the weekly toddler group and they are all well used and well loved. We had a lot of fun making a noticable difference to this community group and ran 4km in total.
Next Tuesday after the run we are going to The Stables for some food. Please sign up so we have an idea of numbers to book a table.
Running to Oldfield Park
Emily led the run from the leisure centre out to Oldfield Park and we met our host Paul. Lots of us have been to this task before, but for those who hadn't been before Paul explained that they get around 40 families (over 100 people) at each of the toddler group sessions. There are lots of different toys that can always do with a cleaning.
Steamin' and Cleanin'
Some of us were on the kitchen crew and we put lots of smaller plastic toys through the dishwasher and wiped them dry. We got through a big box of Duplo and a huge box of plastic food items that the toddlers use in their mini kitchen. We were amazed to find individual plastic pringle crisps!
Another group of runners were spraying and wiping down the larger toys. There was a big elephant slide and lots of musical instruments that were quite sticky and benefited from our cleaning!
Finally, another group of GoodGymmers used the steam cleaner on the fabric toys. The rocking horse looked a lot happier after we had steamed her!
At the end we lined all of the toys back up and we were pleased how much cleaner they looked and smelled! It was a really rewarding and fun evening!
Thanks to Paul for setting up for us and for hosting us. We really appreciate it, Paul. Thanks to Rachel and Phoebe for backmarking for us and thanks to Emily for leading the run.
