Grass cutting, litter picking. Leaflet distribution.
We will remain in two separate groups of six, one group litter and grass other group leaflets.
Rachael completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Rachael was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Curious? Rachael has just run their first session in another area. For that explorative spirit Rachael is awarded the scout badge. A Scout is trustworthy
5 GoodGymers did a fabulous job, getting CoLabs garden ready for opening next week!
Spring is finally here with brighter evenings and easing of lockdown! What could be better than getting out there together, getting fit by doing good!
This evening 5 GoodGymers helped CoLab get their garden ready for opening again next week. CoLab supports and run a number of different community projects across our city so it felt great to be able to give them a hand with this.
The garden looked fab when we left!
A big shout out to our TaskForce Kathy for leading the Community Mission!
Also a very big welcome to Rachael who joined us for the first time in Exeter. It was fab to have you along!
Take a look here at upcoming Community Missions! We'd love to have you along!
We are so happy to get to the end of this lockdown and what could be better than helping CoLab get ready for opening again!
CoLab supports and runs a number of different community projects across our city and they also have small community garden linked to their building. Our job will be to help them sort out this lovely green space. So, get your garden gloves on and come and join us! You'll get fit by doing good and have a great time!
If you can run, walk or cycle to the task that's fantastic! Our taskforce member Kathy will great you at the task. Please bring your own gloves and remember to keep your distance at all times.
Congratulations to Rachael 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 Rachael a cheer to kickstart their mission running career.
Rachael is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
The morning's torrential rain cleared up for us to have our first non-rainy run in weeks. It was great to have James, Lee, Sam, Briony, Jim, Rachael join us for the first time tonight - we look forward to seeing you again soon!
The group split in half to cover two tasks tonight. Mel tackled her injury to lead a team of 16 to Hannah More Primary School. There, Caretaker Bob provided them with brand new pitchforks to turn all of the bark in the extensive playground. It was a large area but the team managed to cover it all and even had time to practice their monkey skills and unearth some ancient dinosaurs. All in an evening's work.
Meanwhile, the rest of the group headed for a long-awaited return to East Bristol Foodbank. They had their most recent supermarket collection today with 1.7 tonnes of food. Andy from the food bank had set up the sorting room ready for us when we arrived.
A little less concencrate-ion, a little more action
Most of the group quickly got to sorting all of this food into different categories ready to be made into food parcels. With Chris's efficient technique of a sorting station and food-category runners, the pace of the group increased dramatically and they got through all of the crates set aside for us and more.
All creatures crate and small
Meanwhile, the Hardcore Group set to hoovering and sanitising all of the crates to prevent any unwanted furry visitors to the store. With their efficient work they got through all the crates just in time for our return run.
After a short detour for a Four Minute 🍑 Blast (which everyone will be feeling tomorrow) we got back to Queen's Square to celebrate Chris's completion of his 250th Good Deed - massive well done Chris! We celebrated with the now traditional Vienetta and the cake he brought, which was so unbelievably delicious that we will forgive him for not baking it himself and getting it through some dodgy black-market deals.
