It was our final session tonight posting leaflets promoting Kirkwood's Christmas Tree Recycling scheme. Thanks to Kati Law (looking festive in her santa hat), Ben Godfrey, Zena Whalley and Tom Elcock for your leaflet posting skills.
Have a good holiday period and I'll see you all in the New Year!
Please note that this community mission has been cancelled.
Greenstreams the local environmental organisation responsible for the Riverside Way is keen for GoodGym to help with clearing a section of boardwalk which has become overgrown. The boardwalk and path is currently inaccessible due to the sheer volume of vegetation which has blocked the route, but with GoodGym's help we can ensure the lovely riverside route is cleared and can be used by local people once again.
All tools and instruction about exactly what is to be done will be provided by Greenstreams, GoodGym will provide the energy. So bring your gloves and we'll get yet another good job done.
We shall meet in the car park next to King's Bridge, please run cycle or walk there if you possibly can.
In common with many charities 2020 has been a tough year for Kirkwood Hospice. With all of their usual fundraising events being cancelled and so much of their regular income drying up practically overnight, funding sources are under greater pressure than ever. That’s why Kirkwood Hospice are determined to make this year’s Christmas tree collection the biggest yet, and to make this happen they need GoodGym to assist!
Their target is to collect and recycle collect over 2000 trees, but before they can do this they need to get the word out and this is where GoodGym can help. We'll be posting hundreds of promotional leaflets in local letterboxes to let people know how they can get their trees recycled following the festive period and raise money for our local hospice into the bargain.
So bring your wooden spoons and spatulas for opening letterboxes and plenty of energy for running between the houses as we deliver. Please note that we will now be posting the leaflets around the Greenhead Park and Gledholt areas so will be meeting by the top gates at Greenhead Park (near the Junction Pub) and not the Stadium Health & Fitness Club as previously advertised.
As ever if you can do so please run, cycle or walk to the meeting point.
It was my 100th GoodGym task tonight, a fact not missed by Kati Law who ensured I wore the fairy wings as is traditional for a 100th task in Huddersfield. Along with Kati and I, Ben Godfrey, Tom Elcock, Jackie Cork and Catherine Gormley managed to shift another stack of flyers promoting Kirkwood's Christmas Tree Recycling Scheme. Well done folks another good job done!
Golcar's Ginnel No.2 had a makeover this morning courtesy of GoodGym. Some decidedly wet conditions didn't stop Kati Law, Louise Galvin, Zena Whalley, Catherine Gormley and David Bilton from getting busy with the spades, secateurs and brooms to remove weeds and vegetation from the narrow pathway.
Thanks to Matt Ellis from Golcar Enviroment Group for providing the task, we'll be back to clear some more ginnels next year when hopefully the weather will be a bit better.
Thanks also to David Bilton for today's report title!
