Weed'id it 🌱

Wed 29 Jul
Report written by Rachael (GoodGym Barnsley)

It was a beautiful morning to spend a good hour and a half at the lovely Locke Park.

Anne and Pat greeted us with beaming smiles as it's been a while since we could last help out! We then donned our gloves and picked up our tools and got stuck in with a weeding task.

The sun was shining and we got a great amount of work done. Anne was happily telling us all about her new car and Pat gave us a fab lesson in plant identification and history.

It was so lovely to be back, we've missed it a lot but hopefully we will be back again soon!

(Belated) Boxing Day

Wed 15 Jan
Report written by Rachael (GoodGym Barnsley)

10 runners ran to help the Barnsley Churches Drop-In sort through festive shoebox donations.

Barnsley regulars, Sheffield tourists, and a brand new member (welcome Emily!) met up to run together to the BCDP. We were greeted again by Peter, who we worked with sorting donations at our last run before the end of 2019. We were back this evening to help sort through the wealth of festive shoebox donations, all provided by generous members of the public for those in need in Barnsley.

With an ample number of GoodGymmers this evening, we quickly got stuck into categorising crates and sections for different items, including toiletries, stationary, men's clothes, women's clothes, and food. There were plenty of cooks in the kitchen so to speak, so Grace, Mairead, Kim and Sarah headed across the road to help in sorting out bigger clothes items.

Many hands made light work and soon there were a dozen crates brimming with donations. We managed to get a quick team photo (thanks Grace) before heading back out into the evening, where we took a slightly longer route back to hike up those step counts. Also a great effort from everybody on the infamous Fitzwilliam Street hill segment 😙💨 let's hope Strava was recording that PB!

It's bean-ginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Wed 18 Dec
Report written by Rachael (GoodGym Barnsley)

4 runners helped out sorting donations at the Barnsley Churches Drop-In Project.

For our last run before the new decade, 4 runners gathered together to help out at the Barnsley Churches Drop-In. We met with Peter, who talked us through the busy week ahead for the Drop-In where they can have over 200 people in need come for food, clothes, and other essentials. Christmas is the busiest time of year, not just for people dropping in, but also for donations - that's where we came in 👍

There were plenty of donations to sort through, and we were put to work in bagging up clothes, sorting out one room specifically for the clothes, sorting out another room for sleeping bags and tents, and finally sorting out food donations into different categories; there were crates for soups, pasta, biscuits, rice, puddings, sauces, and an entire shelf just for baked beans!

We enjoyed chatting to Peter and worked well as a team in getting everything sorted in good time. We wished the team well and then headed back outside for the run back to base.

Regular runner Jason joined us there as we sat down for the Barnsley team Christmas dinner. A great way to celebrate our last group run of the year 🍻🎄

It's been a fantastic year with lots of miles and good deeds achieved by everybody. And now we look forward to 2020!
