Ella completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Ella was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Ella 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.
The first episode in today's two-parter was a very slick affair.
Everyone turned up (big welcome to Ella on her first GG sesh ever 🎉), we shared our favourite meal deal combo (apart from Dawn - she's never had one 🤘) and got cracking with our task.
We do jobs with the GP Food Co Op a lot - They're basically a bunch of Lambeth GPs who see the benefits of being outside and growing & eating veg, so they've set up a load of planters outside various Lambeth surgeries and patients can help out. It's pretty rad.
Anyway, Crown Dale Medical Centre is getting a big overhaul with a massive extension so the planters need to be moved. But first they had to be emptied of soil - that was our job.
We had 9 shovels, 2 wheelbarrows and a load of huge bags (luckily Chrissy from Crown Dale had bought extras - and we needed them) and needed to move 6 planters-worth of soil into the corner of the car park.
Team 1 got to work quickly, emptying the 3 main planters in no time and making a good start on 2 of the others. Effie and Charlotte became chiefs of the piles (of bags of soil 😉) and even arranged for them to be filled up on top of each other to save space.
After an hour of hard graft, and finding plenty of leftover potatoes, Team 2 came along to finish the job. Over to you Liv...

A community mission!
The Lambeth GP Food Co Op provide patients with the opportunity to grow (and eat) veg at the NHS surgeries across Lambeth.
Crowndale surgery is having some extensive building work done so their planters need to be put in storage, but first they need emptying. Our job is to empty 6 planters of soil into some big bags - this will be a proper good workout 💪
We have 2 shifts to get this done in - 10-11am & 11-12pm. And there may be more spaces available in the future if they can source more shovels so do check back if it's full.
Suuuper important to bring gardening gloves and keep a good distance from other people at the task (obvs).
