Declan completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Declan was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Declan is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
On Saturday 6th March, our GoodGym runners descended on Project Ravensgard - a supported living housing project - to help to tranform their overgrown grounds of a beautiful house into a safe haven for residents to enjoy over the spring and summer months.
They dug, they chopped and they shifted the earth to clear away the brambles and bushes and reveal a fantastic space that will soon become a BBQ, sensory and social area.
And all the spring sunshine!
Stockport Together is a volunteer led community group working to bring organisations together to support the community off Stockport during the current pandemic.
Project Ravenscroft is the renovation of an old house which has been successfully converted to provide 10 supported living apartments.
They currently have no funding and are relying on volunteers to help to create a safe space for the tennants to relax and socialise in the warmer months by transforming their garden into a tidy place with sports, sensory and seating areas.
Our task will be to cut back the existing shrubbery (lots of upper body strength!) and create the space for the residents to use the area safely.
