Lizzy has already done 25 good deeds with GoodGym. Instead of doing anything else, they've used their run to go and help people that need their help; digging, lifting, scraping, clearing, planting and weeding. Stuff that makes this a better place to be.
Lizzy has just done something they've never done before. Lizzy has just run a mission; they've changed their running route and run to help someone who really needed their help.
Three from GoodGym joined a number of residents and ABCD in Luton, to make a start on this large task.
A long footpath that had been long neglected, there was a lot to do and we could only tackle the first section. While residents got on with the cutting GoodGym did the leg work and shuttled back and forth with all the prickly cutting on a tarp, to the pile for collection.
We revealed a lot of litter in the process, both small and large, from a mattress and a fridge down to a packet of Salt and Lineker crisps, which had been waiting 24 years for someone to pick it up!
We've done a few visits to Leagrave Park and it's really looking smart these days and deserving of its green flag status!
We'll be doing a thorough search for any rubbish that was missed last time, and any new litter thats been left by park visitors, keeping the fields and the river clean and tidy.
Congratulations to Lizzy who is now Mission Verified. They're now ready to start running GoodGym missions to help older people and running alone to community mission. Give Lizzy a cheer to kickstart their mission running career.
This footpath is a link through to the Crawley Green Sports field and has become massively overgrown and litter strewn.
We're joining forces with ABCD in Luton to try and clear up as much as we can on this day, but there's lots to do, we may be back!
Lizzy just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Lizzy a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.
