Planning to visit every Goodgym in London.
What a turnout. What a safe, productive, industrious, dedicated, companionable turnout.
A big sized team headed to the huge warehouse in Poplar today to be allocated many types of stocktacking tasks by project co-ordinator Richard:
“A great crew of people dropping in and out today! Our task was sorting and organising with abandon.
Richard presented us with multiple crates of miscellaneous donations for logging, passing on/reusing… There was sports equipment aplenty (in the morning I think a lot of hard work was undertaken separating basketballs from footballs…), as well as bundles of craft items and lots of stationary.
Crate by crate we unpacked and reassembled in more crates: yep, crates of paints, crates of pencils... You get the picture. And we found all sorts of interesting goodies - a spikey pink ball and the coup de grace: an elf on the shelf.”
“Yep, another fun filled, busy day down at the warehouse where Richard had us stocktaking a wide array of donations (yoga mats, balls – lots, in all sizes - books by the hundreds; wool, embroidery items and knitting needles; games and jigsaws…), caging items up and, where necessary, wrapping in industrial cling film to prevent them escaping.
Provided you came wearing sufficient layers, to take account of the somewhat chilly conditions inside the warehouse today, it was another enjoyable (and, we hope, productive) day in deepest Poplar.”
What a team. A big, big thank you to everyone who took part in this fabulous Community Mission, and especially to Becky and Nick for writing the report and taking pics, and to Charlotte and Jacqui for their pics too.
Here we go team! Starting on Monday 25th January, you have until 20:00 on Sunday 31st January to run or walk a marathon.
That's 42.2 km or 26.4 miles.
You can do this in however many sessions you want, however you want over the week - running, walking, or a mixture of the two.
Make sure that you track all activities on Strava and that your Strava account is connected to your GoodGym account so that all your steps count!
