Leafletting For Get Rid Of & Donate

Tue 2 Nov 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
Spread the word so more people donate their unused stuff!

Get Rid Of And Donate (GROAD) do amazing work taking people's unused clothes, homeware, furniture and toys and repurposing it for their refugee and rough sleeper projects. They rely on a steady stream of donations, and spreading the word through flyering is one of the best way to make people aware.

We'll be running 3km to North Dulwich and then run/walking around the houses dropping leaflets through letter boxes.


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??

GG Lambeth does Brockwell Parkrun

Sat 16 Oct 09:00 am
Brockwell Park - Lido entrance, Dulwich Road, London, SE24 0PA
Come for a couple of loops of the park and a post-run coffee!

This is a lovely 5k loop and a half of Brockwell Park with the option of grabbing a tea or coffee afterwards and a chat of course!

Meet at the start location (where the big group of runners is near the Lido) and lookout for the red GoodGym tees from 8:50am or so.

Afterwards we'll wait until every GoodGymmer has crossed the line (with plenty of cheering obvs) and then head to Herne Hill, maybe for a beverage (and pastry?!) from the Blackbird Bakery.

WE'VE ALSO GOT A COMMUNITY MISSION HAPPENING AFTERWARDS! It's for Palace Road Nature Garden and you can click here to sign up :)

Don't forget your barcode Register here if you haven't done a parkrun before.

Whether you're chasing a PB or want to run-walk your way round, you are more than welcome :)

No Mossing Around

Tue 12 Oct
Report written by Mark Gilyead

Puns today courtesy of Michael 🙏

A great atmossphere

Dayum it gets dark so early now. Nevermind. The darkness wouldn’t put off our team of 12 wonderful GoodGymers!


Tonight’s task took us to Brixton Road Youth Centre where we met Sharron and Kathy who had a pretty mossy job for us...

The ground clearly gets pretty moist and lockdown had given the moss a chance to grow on a lot of the ground around the youth centre. Our job was to scrape it up with shovels and rakes and bag it up with as many leaves as possible. Michael also was given an extra job of trimming some trees back away from the path with some pretty funky secateurs. ✂️🌿

It was a tough challenge, with some nasty scraping noises and some seriously stubborn moss, but in the end we had a good 10 bags of leaves, moss and tree cuttings!

Blink and you’ll moss it


On the way back, we had a few pitstops for some lunges, press ups, tricep dips, wall-sits (X2) 😏 and a few quick squats before the traffic lights went green.

It moss be love.

Great stuff everyone!

Next week we’re helping out GROAD to sort some donations and pack some bags for rough sleepers - click here to sign up!

Raking leaves at Brixton Road Youth Centre

Tue 12 Oct 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
And bagging them up

The leaves have been falling again at Brixton Road Youth Centre, so we're going back for our regular job of sweeping them up and bagging them. Our record is about 30 bags - can we beat it!?

We then stick them on the kerbside so the council can take them and use them for compost! 👌

SHELF LYF

Tue 5 Oct
Report written by Mark Gilyead

After a last minute change of task, tonight’s crew were off to Jubilee Primary School for some lifting and shifting.

We met at PAPA’s, shared our favourite biscuit (19 people with nearrllyy 19 different biscuit types 😯), welcomed Freya to her first GG run🎉 and had a quick warm up before hitting the road.


Sarah led a 4k route and the rest of us took the direct 2k route and we got cracking on with 2 tasks:

In the Library: we were shifting shelves, books, games and huge boxes into a cupboard.

In the Car Park: we were chucking some big planks of wood into the skip.

Squat, skip & jump

Both teams finished at exactly the same time, and we had a chaotic game of Rock, Paper, Scissors in the playground. Lose and you do squat jumps up to (What’s the time) Mr Wolf. Win and you sprint to the other side, do 5 press ups and run back.


We ran back, did some stretches and then had some ginger & coconut biscuits!

Here’s the link to sign up to next week’s run!
