Go and give Max a cheer for getting on his bike and getting to the Community Mission yesterday despite suffering with some pretty awful vaccine side effects. Talk about taking one for the team!

Max, Neil and Sara completed a busy hour at East End Women foodbank where they helped to build, assemble and stock the shelves ready for the new deliveries. Its amazing to see how this charity has really stepped up to a difficult challenge and we are really proud to be part of it.

Report written by Anji Andrews

It's a six-pack of cheers for everyone who took on the Core Blimey challenge this week for the training session.

Four of us took part in a killer abs work out that included:

8 x Russian twists

8 x dead bugs

30 second side planks (each side)

8 v sits

30 second front plank

If you haven't tried this circuit before, give it a go and feel the burn!

I loved Louise's commitment of completing the workout in the ravishing red of GoodGym. Top marks!

Snow stoppin us now

Wed 10 Feb
Report written by Anji Andrews

I had to make a last minute (ok two days ago) u-turn out of the community mission today to have a chat with a reporter who wants to write a piece about the goodness of GoodGym Newcastle but thankfully Max and Sara were there to get the job done.

Max ran to and from the mission today showing there is sNOw stopping him while new GGer Sara was back for her second Wednesday in a row.

Unlike our usual Wednesdays, there was no car packing today just getting food parcels ready for the big delivery day tomorrow. Another brilliant hour snowballed in to the week!

Rain drops keep falling on our veg

Wed 3 Feb
Report written by Anji Andrews

Biblical weather by the Tyne could not dampen our brilliant Wednesday visit to help out at East End Women foodbank!

I arrived first to find yet again regular foodbank staff (and complete angels) Sarah and Fiona had already prepared five sets of deliveries ready to be packed into vans. I tasked regular GGer Max to be the car packer today while I grumble through a shonky knee.

New GG runner Sara arrived just after we had started and happily got straight into packing bags- they needed us to make a strong start ahead of 81 food parcel collections tomorrow. Sara is a student in Newcastle and can't wait for GoodGym to get back to Group Running so she can get to know the wider group.

As always we battled through the rain, only dampening a few bags of groceries and definitely not our enthusiasm.

There are two visits booked in for next week so get involved if you can. You won't courgette it!

Canny lot of Haggis

Wed 27 Jan
Report written by Aimee Bambridge

We were back at the food bank again for another bonus Wednesday mission, helping unpacking boxes and pack delivery driver’s cars.

Me and Flo were mostly on packing boxes of food donated by shops, putting them into crates and then stacking creates of the same food type into towers, to create a well organised stock room. Max was packing bags of food to go out and then taking them to the driver’s cars.

One of the more unusual things we were unpacking among boxes of tea, jars of coffee and tins of chopped tomatoes was many cans of haggis. We can only presume these were left over stock from burns night on Monday evening.

I forgot to take a group picture before Flo had to leave so instead there is a very rushed one of me and Max before I had to also leave to hurry back to work.

As always, a great way to take my break from work with some heavy lifting and helping people.
