The “GoodGym feeling”
5 benefits I get from being in GoodGym, by Charlotte Proud
Myself, Elly and Michael made a brilliant team tonight. We were helping the great organisation FoodCycle with delivering leaflets in Felling to promote the great work they do within the Community (close to their project which runs on a Friday)
The weather was very mixed, it was so windy that we had to be careful to not drop any leaflets but was warm/sunny.
We had a lovely walk and the three of us stuck together as we managed to deliver 250 leaflets in just one hour exactly (fantastic!)
I got the fright of my life when I was surprised by a dog that had escaped from a garden (just as I was posting a leaflet) Thankfully it was all fine though as both Michael and the owner came to the rescue, and we had a good laugh about it afterwards.
Not one but two Task Force heroes reach a mega 200 good deeds on Tuesday 31st and with just a few weeks since amazing Aimee did the same, we thought this was a good chance to toast success with a post-task drink at The Tyne Bar.
You don't need to attend the task first to come along, just meet us at The Cycle Hub at the end of the task or over at The Tyne Bar where I have also heard there will be CAKE!! Tyne Bar also serves food on a Tuesday night so feel free to grab something to eat while you are there.
Hope to see you there.
Dropping some leaflets through the doors of those who live near FoodCycle Byker to let them know about their amazing meals!

There will be an optional fitness session to complete before we run and walk back to the start point. if you need to meet at the task that's fine too- we will be there at 18:30, but please let me know via the WhatsApp Group so I don't wait for you at the start!
