Need-le Little Help From Our Volunteers

Thu 4 Nov
Report written by Nicola Marshall

It was great to see Rob back at the vaccine centre today at the the old MMU. This time, they were there to help with the smooth running of the booster vaccine.

Rob was heavily involved with the initial vaccines and didn't take any persuading to get back down to the vaccine centre when he heard that they were rolling out the booster jabs.

Rob was back out on car park duties, supervising all the arrivals, ensuring they were parked safely and getting into the building ok.

Well done Rob, you are an inspiration to us all xxx

By 'George' We Did It!

Wed 27 Oct
Report written by Nicola Marshall

Last night was extra special as we were celebrating two milestones…

Firstly, the lovely Emily was celebrating her 50th task milestone!! Well done Emily, an incredible achievement – especially as most of it has been carried out in the middle of a global pandemic! You are such a wonderful inspiration and a hugely valued member of our Goodgym Family.

And secondly to Maurice who completed his 150th ‘not parkrun’ around the George’s last night. Throughout the pandemic, Maurice has kept fit by running laps of the George’s community park. As parkrun wasn’t up and running, Maurice found his own alternative parkrun and has now completed 150!! Amazing work Maurice, you are also a huge inspiration to us all.

Last night, 7 Goodgym members donned their head torches and litter pickers and set off on a community litter pick. But before we set off, we had our warmup and our run. As we had a bit more space today, we had a little relay race. 3 runners on each team – each had to take a turn of either running, skipping or walking. It was good fun but the only mistake I made was making them do it only once as it was over too quickly!!!!

After our warm up, we let Maurice lead the way around his ‘not parkrun’ route. We completed two laps. It was dark but Maurice knows the place like the back of his hand – he’s run it 600 times!!! (4 laps for each ‘not parkrun’).

After our run, we set to work on our litter pick. To be honest, we didn’t think we’d find much litter as it looked pretty clean but on closer inspection, we realised there was actually enough to fill a fair few bags (I think there were six in total). It was quite satisfying to collect all that

All in all, it was a productive and fairly energetic evening – plenty of exercise and fresh air and all spent in the best company.

Well done everyone on another awesome evening of #fun, #fitness, #friendship and the #feel good factor. You’re all incredible.

Huge hugs Nicola xxx

PS – I forgot to hand out the biscuits – again!!!!! #useless

A 'Jab'-ulous Duo

Thu 14 Oct
Report written by Nicola Marshall

It was great to see Maurice & Rob back at the vaccine centre at the the old MMU. This time, they were there to help with the smooth running of the booster vaccine.

Rob and Maurice were both heavily involved with the initial vaccines and they didn't take any persuading to get back down to the vaccine centre when they heard that they were rolling out the booster jabs.

Maurice and Rob were back out on car park duties, supervising all the arrivals, ensuring they were parked safely and getting into the building ok.

Rob and Maurice were only supposed to be there for the morning session but as the volunteers for the afternoon never arrived, it meant that they took on a double shift!! They worked tirelessly for hours, stood in the cold - but they didn't moan, they did it gladly. What superstars!

Well done Maurice and Rob, you are an inspiration to us all xxx
