Liz has just reached another level: 100 good deeds with GoodGym. That's at least 100 times when they could have easily done something easier. But they didn't, Liz has kept going and going. Helping a lot of other people and getting a bit fitter at the same time. Congratulations Liz.
This evening marked a special occasion as Liz K was completing her 100th good deed! There will soon be a 'wings' t-shirt headng your way.
It was also nice to see a few old faces returning back :-)
We embarked on a 1-mile each way trip to Silver Road Community Centre where Julie and some of her team greeted us.
As the centre is open as usual, our task was to make the outside area tidy and clear of weeds.
With about 5 mins to go the heavy rain pelted down. Half of the group took shelter, the other half kept working haha.
A lot got done in a short time and made the centre looking great from the outside.
We finished with a honeycomb kit-kat... they are pretty darn good, before making our way back to The Forum.
Silver Road Community Centre, would like our help to weed the from and side of the community centre, which has overgrown over the last few months.
You can either meet at the task at 6.30pm (Silver Road, NR3 4TB) or meet us outside The Forum at 6.15pm, where you can either walk, run or cycle with us. The distance is approximately 1.5km each way.
Please bring your own gloves and a head torch if you have one.
Although there is no baggage storage at The Forum, any belongings can be left in my vehicle.
The youngsters of Norwich weren’t put off by the overcast sky and slightly chilly weather, with around 100 Junior Park Runners powering around the course today. Before the event, four of them were awarded their ‘half marathon’ wristbands for having completed 11 of these 2k runs - what a great motivational treat 😊
Liz has just done something they've never done before. Liz has just run a mission; they've changed their running route and run to help someone who really needed their help.
Two of us moved some furniture to get the room set up ready for when the gentleman returns home from hospital, so that he can be more mobile at home. We discussed the fortunes of Norwich City Football team with the lady of the house, and decided that we had earned more in brownie points tonight than Norwich have achieved so far this season.
