Tea-sy does it

Wed 13 Jan
Report written by Anji Andrews

The hour we spent at East End Women foodbank absolutely flew over today as we loaded deliveries to drivers, unloaded a massive food delivery, and organised the store room to make space for more! I only managed to crash the trolley once today and thankfully NOT when it was full of glass jars. Phew!

It was great to have Max along for his first good deed today- I loved the team work that went into this because he and Kate shared cycling and running to and from the task. Also on two wheels was Rae, back at the bank for another good deed while juggling life (kind of) back at uni. We also had a discussion today on the joys of different types of tea- definitely a winter/lockdown chat!

It's great to see the difference we keep making at the foodbank, so if you fancy bringing some joy to your week, we are back there next week.

Miles of smiles

Where ever you are, In your own Town, or City , In the postcode you're in
Spread happiness and clock up the steps

Kudos to everyone who completed last week's 5k your way- you're all epic.

This week's challenge is to collect miles of smiles. Keep a track of your distance, linking to Strava for the team effort of the January challenge, and collect smiles along the way. Try to greet everyone you pass with a smile or a hello and keep count of how many you manage to share.

You can walk, run or cycle for this one. Let's spread some GG love.

Three sweeping brushes, two coat hangers and a frozen-on pigeon poo

Wed 16 Dec
Report written by Anji Andrews

Never a dull moment at our visit to Recyke Y Bike tonight!

Lets start with a massive cheer for Aimee on a double community mission day after leading the Wednesday Bonus foodbank mission today! Kudos! Aimee took on the painting task solo tonight, glossing like a boss.

Charlotte and Sam did a fabulous job of sweeping, I hung up donations of cycling jerseys while Tom happily took the short straw of mopping frozen-on pigeon poo off the workshop floor. We all took turns at the bonus task of patting resident dog Scout who is always in need of attention.

We can't wait to be back in the new year for more dogs, bikes and good things.

Goodness Gracious, great bags of goodies

Mon 14 Dec
Report written by Anji Andrews

We had a brilliant catch up walk last night which tied in with a chance to donate to our friends at East End Women food bank. Check out those supplies! We walked the 5k loop from the Cycle Hub to the swing bridge and took in three bridges of the Tyne.

It was a walk with lots of laughs, talk of hoarding stuff (wedding photos anyone?) and some top quality (!) podcast recommendations.

It was great to have Lauren along for what was her last GoodGym Newcastle event before she moves to Kent in January. We will miss you!
