29 runners ran 9.6km to help the Remakery and Brixton People's Kitchen in Lambeth.
- Tuesday, 11th of February 2020
- Led by Mark Gilyead
Despite a last minute cancellation, we had TWO tasks on offer.
Nicky lead the run to option one: ☝️
Our group of excellent group of GoodGymmers braved the cold to run to the beloved Remakery. After a quick introduction to the brilliant work they do there, reusing and upcycling materials into furniture/sculptures etc, our first challenge was to divide into three groups - one large, one medium, one small.
Two groups were sweeping and hoovering the woodwork workshops. Armed with a Henry Hoover and very attractive face masks, they quickly made a huge difference. The other group were moving large piles of wooden planks and sorting them into small, medium and large. They quickly got a system in place and GoodGym efficiency won again. On our way back to base, we did a quick meet and retreat fitness round Myatts Fields park. And then it was time to head home and warm up.
Good work everyone! - Nicky
The rest of us headed had a longer run to flyer for Brixton People’s Kitchen, actually nearer Vauxhall...
By day, it’s a cafe serving good value grub to locals. By night, it provides cooking workshops using food from supermarkets that would otherwise go to waste!
We split into 3 groups to cover 3 separate areas in the immediate vicinity. Unfortunately we couldn't get into the upper flat block levels... but hopefully those on the ground floor will spread the word to their neighbours! After a solid 20 minutes avoiding finger-biting dogs, we took a few beautiful posed photos and headed back.
Oh and there was even a lovely lit up heart. GoodGym's theme for the month is #GiveItHeart so that was nice :)
Cracking running guys!
See y'all next week for another two tasks: Clearing out furniture at Brixton Rd Youth Centre and pulling up the rest of the ivy at the YELLOW QUBE. Also, it's pub week! 🍻 🍻 🍻
