🏃 14 Intrepid runners braved the slick streets and traffic of Brixton to rescue the 50 meter long planters at Jubilee Primary School from weeds.

Pre-run briefing was delivered by Katie on the lifecycle of mushrooms that she picked up on last Saturday's Community Mission

In one patch, once the weeds were cleared, a trove of rock hard potatoes (or possibly large pebbles were unearthed) alongside plastic gardening tools, many pencils, a tennis ball and a small chalk board. These rescued items will be put back to good use!

After 30 solid minutes of work ten black bags stuffed with garden waste were disposed of while part of the group did a quick fitness blast. 🏋

Special shout out to Kaz for daring to go where no one had gone before with his clearing of the outer boundaries and to Jessie who just hit the milestone of 25 Good Deeds !!

A big thank you to Juan at Jubilee Primary School for equipping us - we will be back to help scrape the old rubber ff the tarmac in the playground 💪 !
