Last night we jogged/walked 2.21km to West Croydon Baptist Church, to assist Croydon Refugee Centre.

We welcomed Charley to her first Goodgym session.

We were met by Simon at the refugee centre who had a set of tasks ready for us to complete.

We separated into two groups one in the back room sorting clothes into the the boxes on the shelves into their respective age groups and the other in the main hall, going through the clothes rails removing empty hangers and sorting the clothes into the correct sizes on the clothes rails.

We learnt about Charley, and her adventures abroad while she learnt about us and all things Goodgym. We made sure not to overload her with too much information but gave her just enough to keep her enticed to join us next week for the other installment.

Did someone say Guinness?

Rumour has it someone we know may or may not be appearing in the Guinness Book of Records, sorry cannot say anymore than that at the moment.

Next week it’s the last Tuesday of the month, will you be joining us at the Bedford tavern after the group run for some food and drinks?

Fancy a kick about?
