W(h)ATMOre Could We Do?!

Tue 7 Dec
β€’
Report written by Yianny

Six brave souls took on the elements to deliver flyers to the Thorlands Estate

There was wind, slick pavements and biting cold but the hardy group of Katie, Adam, Jessie, Lindy, Shauna and Tim set off from base at Papa's Park and made the 1.7km run to Thorlands Estate. Tim led the group out and Katie made sure no-one was left behind and the group made it down in great time to be confronted by the multiple estates of Thorlands.

With door fobs at the ready it was 3-2-1-GO ⏱ and they were off, splitting each block into floors and racing to get as many flyers through doors as possible. The flyers themselves were advertising all the upcoming events offered by WATMOS to the residents of Thorlands including volunteering and training opportunities - a very worthwhile task indeed!

Incredibly the runners managed well over a hundred flyers in 30 minutes covering most of the blocks on the far side of the estate - what an achievement πŸ’ͺ

Happily no-one was bitten by a letterbox (or a pet) and the group were back at Papa's safely for a bit of fitness (wall-less wall-sits anyone??) and a warm down.

Huge thanks to Katie as well for bringing both vegan and non vegan cookies, a great way to send everyone home at the end. 😍

Fly(er) Me to the Moon and Let Me Play Among the Stars

Tue 7 Dec 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
Raising awareness of WATMOS events

Join the fly(er) gents and ladies from WATMOS to leaflet their tenants with all the great and good upcoming end of year events.

It will be a short run from our base at Papa's Park, grab the fobs and leaflets and then get started in a race like no other - imagine the RAID movies with less shooting and more leaflet through letterbox action ⏱

Time to lace up, grab a stack of (recyclable) leaflets and feel the burn of a stair workout on a Tuesday evening πŸ‹

Rocky Road to Vegan Blondies!

Tue 23 Nov

Report written by Yianny

A bumper Tuesday for GG Lambeth runners with two tasks, runs heading off in opposite directions, an Area Activator in a boot/on crutches and hand torches running out of battery throughout the evening! πŸ˜–

In true Lambeth style two Task Force members stepped forward to lead the runs - shout out to Charlotte & Sarah - the Autumn classic collecting and bagging leaves at Brixton Road Youth Centre and making a start on GROAD moving their donations into a new storage unit. πŸ’ͺ

The sprinters headed off for the 1.5kms to Brixton Road where it has been 'raining leaves' and were able to clear a huge amount (see photos!) while the middle distance runners made the 3.5km journey (with a long hill climb) to West Norwood and were faced with a Herculean mountain of donations to move. πŸš€

There are still two more opportunities to support Get Rid of and Donate this week with Community Missions on Wednesday and Friday - if you are free please do sign up!

With some fantastic back marking everyone arrived back at base safely and in time to celebrate Michael's fantastic achievement of 150 Good Deeds while enjoying Rocky Road bites and vegan Blondies! (Thanks Charlotte & Tim) 😍

Two For Tuesday - Brixton Road Youth Centre x GROAD !!

Tue 23 Nov 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
Clear the path around the building so it stops getting soggy and mossy!

This week's closer task is a regular for the Autumn - Brixton Road Youth Centre has some huge trees and it's the time of year where they don't stop shedding their leaves...

We'll meet Sharron and Cathy who will prep us with bags and rakes and we'll blitz the outside of the building πŸ’ͺ

It's about a 2k run each way but we'll have a longer option for those that fancy it.

Please bring gardening gloves and a head torch if you have them! 🧀

Task 2 is to help our friends at GROAD with a internal move at their storage in Norwood - clearing three units into one. πŸ‹


New to GG Lambeth? We're a super friendly group who meet at Papa's Park near Brixton Station at 7pm on Tuesdays. We run to a local organisation, do a physical task for them and run back by 8:30. You can leave things in Papa's Cafe where there's a loo too! Email me if you've got any questions??

On Your MARKs... Get Set... Gone.

Report written by Mark Gilyead

I don't know if a self indulgent pun is allowed but Sarah suggested it so I'm going with it.

Tonight was my last Group Run as Lambeth AA, which was kinda sad but also exciting, because the awesome Yianny is taking over! πŸŽ†πŸ’₯πŸŽ‰

We had THREE good deeds to get done and I can confirm they were completed. βœ… βœ… βœ…


But first... we met at PAPA's, welcomed Yianny and also Kaz here for his first Lambeth group run! We had a quick warm up outside and then split into 3 groups:

πŸ“¬Aislin and Nathan took a group to finish off a task we had last week - flyering for the fab GROAD who take donated clothes, housewares and furniture and give it out as part of their refugee and homelessness projects.

πŸ‚Sarah had a small group who were bagging up leaves at PAPA's - they included a little loop of the block to keep warm too!

πŸ‚And the rest of us ran 2k to Brixton Road Youth & Community Centre to also bag leaves - and thank goodness there were 17 of us because there were a hell of a lot of leaves... The bags that Sharron had bought were mostly quite small... but that did wonders for our self esteem as we filled twice as many as we normally would! (Seriously - see pic of Issy & bags). After half an hour we headed back with a few press ups, tricep dips, a wall sit and some squats on the way!


When we got back, we did a few stretches and then it was cake time! Sarah had prepared a "Goodbye Mark" cupcake message 😊 and Nathan's carrot cake cupcakes were absolutely delicious 🀀🀀🀀🀀 Also shout out to Tim for an iiiiiiincredible card (and cheers everyone else for the messages!).

We then went round the corner for a beverage! 🍻 It reminded me what makes the Lambeth community so damn special. Everyone who rocks up from those on 2 good deeds to 200 (and beyond...) is so awesome and friendly and I will really miss our weekly hangs to do good.

BIG LOVE ❀️

-- said Mark to the whole Lambeth gang.

Triple Task Tuesday βœ…βœ…βœ…

Tue 9 Nov 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
MARK'S LAST LAMBETH RUN

After a last minute cancellation, we have not one, but three opportunities to do good across Lambeth!

πŸ“¬Our longer run option will be to post leaflets for the fab Get Rid Of & Donate - it'll be about 6k in total.

πŸ‚ Brixton Road Youth Club have asked us for a hand bagging all the leaves once again! That's about 2k away.

πŸ‚And Papa's Park have also asked if we can clear their leaves too! That shouldn't take too long, so this team will then join the others at Brixton Road.

Afterwards we'll head to the pub if anyone fancies it! 🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻

Come flyer with me, let's flyer, let's flyer away...

Report written by Mark Gilyead

13 massive legends met this evening for a run and a good deed.

We were helping out Get Rid Of & Donate (GROAD) with some leafleting to get more people to donate their unused things for rough sleeper and refugee projects.

First, we met at Papa's, welcomed brand-new-to-GoodGym Charlotte, Vic and Nick - πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Then we had our SPOTM prize to give out:

Poster Boy βœ‰οΈ

The worthy recipient of a foam pig, 2 Brixton Brewery stickers, a β€œRun Sandringham” buff and a historic Lambeth walks leaflet - Adam! Who has done an incredible about of good over the last month (17 good deeds) across 4 different areas. So good.


After a quick warm up, we ran over to Herne Hill to meet Andrea from GROAD who gave us a load of leaflets and instructed us on the areas to cover.

  • My group had a pretty easy run up Half Moon Lane (though there was lots of running between some big houses…)

  • Frances & co had the maze of Delawyck Crescent to navigate (which they think they did successfully?!)

  • And Nathan’s team ran a bit further, towards Dulwich, though they hit some issues…

Lost Property 🏠

Magda found a good side road to flyer, but when she came back out the others were gone…

Thankfully she turned up back at our meeting point having taken a little diversion so all was fine in the end.

It even gave the rest of us a chance to warm up with some circuits - wall sits, jumping jacks and squats!


We then had a speedy run back to base for some stretches.

Great stuff guys!! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯
