Keeping it Skip-shape!

Tue 16 Nov
Report written by Liz Pharoah

What a great evening and which a pleasure to see this request come to fruition.

This evening 9 GoodGym Coventry members support Kairos as they develop their outdoor area.

There was an immense amount of budlea and brambles alongside the building as well as garden debris to the rear and even more budlea and brambles further back.

As normal, the GoodGym team were unphased and got on with the task and transformed the outdoor area.

It was really great to meet John and he was a great help with the budlea and brambles clearing the rear with Lil and Susan. Laura and Maddie ensured the paths were clean and tidy and Jackie and Vic ensured that the captain of our skip, Allan, was kept busy keeping it skip-shape. Many thanks to The Kitchens Inc for supporting Kairos in sourcing the skip.

Tidying up the garden area for Kairos

Allow for the outdoor area to be used

We will be meeting at Kairos: All Saints Church (St Margaret's, 50 Walsgrave Rd, Coventry CV2 4EB

We will do a fitness session once the task is complete.

Welcome to GoodGym Coventry! We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every week to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects in our area.

The Task:

We will be supporting Kairos with the tidying up of their outside area. There may be brambles. Wear gloves.

Kairos WWT was set up in April 1999 to reach out to a group of women that were perceived to be marginalised and vulnerable; women that were caught up in street prostitution. It was recognised that there were many complex issues that bound the women to prostitution and that there was a clear need for a dedicated project that could build relationships with these women and broker the provision of mainstream services that all to often failed to reach the women.

The Run/walk:

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and it is often possible to walk to the task if you would prefer. We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is.

Report written by Liz Pharoah

On a cold Tuesday evening, 10 GoodGym Coventry members ran to support Carriers of Hope and Clothing Coventry.

it was great to welcome Susan on her first run with GoodGym Coventry and Laura led the warm up which was great too.

As several members of the group had participated in Coventry half marathon at the weekend so we had a walking and running group.

For Clothing Coventry, we sorted some clothes so that the summery donated clothes were packed away leaving only weather appropriate Clothing for the newly arrived refugees.

For Carrier of Hope, we started sorting toiletries for gifts and donations ready for their shoebox Christmas appeal.

We then ran and walked back to the start with the runners taking part in hill reps too!

Next week, we will be stick taking with the Social supermarket in Foleshill.
