Getting out to help out

Sat 16 Jan
Report written by Jenni H

To get our lovely gang out and about this month, we set a scavenger hunt of places that can be found wherever we all are at the moment. With entries from Ealing, Manchester and Liverpool, we scavenged our way round our locales and found new places and some favourite spots, while getting in some extra distance for the January distance challenge!

The places they were tasked to visit and snap a photo at were;

  • Your favourite local pub

  • A cinema/theatre

  • A medical centre (hospital, doctors etc)

  • A non-essential, and non-chain shop

  • Your favourite local restaurant

  • A river, lake or canal

  • Complete a lap of your local park

  • The foodbank, or a drop off point in a supermarket

  • A church/temple/mosque/synagogue/place of worship

  • Your local coffee shop

  • A gym/swimming pool

  • Complete a loop of a cul-de-sac

  • A postbox/post office

  • A Christmas tree outdoors

  • The view from the top of a hill

The places you should visit, and snap a selfie at are;

  • Your favourite local pub

  • A cinema/theatre

  • A medical centre (hospital, doctors etc)

  • A non-essential, and non-chain shop

  • Your favourite local restaurant

  • A river, lake or canal

  • Complete a lap of your local park

  • The foodbank, or a drop off point in a supermarket

  • A church/temple/mosque/synagogue/place of worship

  • Your local coffee shop

  • A gym/swimming pool

  • Complete a loop of a cul-de-sac

  • A postbox/post office

  • A Christmas tree outdoors

  • The view from the top of a hill

Don't forget to track your journey (and link your Strava to your GoodGym profile!) to add to our area's total distance covered.

Please send any photos to Jenni at jenni@goodgym.org for the report, and enjoy the great outdoors safely!

Glad to be losing our 2020 vision!

Thu 31 Dec
Report written by Miranda Gray

What better way to end 2020, some might say it was a good(gym) way to end a bad year!

Here's how it went down:

  • Big welcome to Sarah who took part for the first time today, she doubled up and dropped off two essential food parcels for us today!
  • It was lovely to have Yvonna back with us today, she also dropped off to two families
  • Shan and Miranda were our walking team today and made sure a family in West Ealing had the food they needed
  • Chris and Liv took in a lovely route along the canal on their bikes to do a delivery in Southall
  • Alex and Marieke took on their usual Acton delivery - They've made such a difference this year and we would be lost without them!
  • Clare also doubled up for us today and did two drop - big kudos!
  • Lucy joined us from Hammersmith & Fulham and teamed up with Harvey by bike for another Acton drop
  • Chris helped us again this week with two drops - been great having her help over the festive period!
  • And last but not least Michelle (and extremely cute sidekick Henry) dropped off the last essential parcel

Here's what Miranda had to say who took part by walking with her son:

A nice way to end the year and it was great to see we did a good deed!

Santa's BIG helpers!

Thu 24 Dec
Report written by Jenni H

It's been a challenging year for everyone, and GoodGym Ealing have been helping to keep our local foodbank stocked up throughout this year.

With tiers increasing in London faster than you can say 'ho ho ho', December's foodbank drop lasted the whole month for us and that has given even more people a chance to donate!

Thank you to everyone who has made a donation throughout this year!
