Sarah has helped keep other people motivated, Sarah has noticed what others have done and cheered 10 people. We doff our caps to you Sarah.
Sarah completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Sarah was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Sarah 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.
On an incredibly wet Saturday in Catford, 10 of GoodGym's most dedicated helpers showed some roots who's boss.
Ah, what a treat to be back at the helm and what a treat to welcome some new visitors to Lewisham! A big welcome and Lewisham Love to Sarah, who was tackling her very first good deed - what a day to debut! A shout-out must also go to Lewis, who cycled all the way from Dartford and Alex who pedalled over from Tower Hamlets. Blimey!
No time was wasted in getting stuck in, with Oli kindly giving me some top tips on which tools work best (he's done this a few times now!). We had little teams working across the space, some digging up brambles, some raking, Louie weed-bashing and some very determined root-digging from Hector, Edward and Linda - one tree stump wasn't enough, so they kept moving on to bigger and bigger challenges!
You can see from the photos that the weather changed quite quickly, with rain coming down in buckets and the ground under our feet resembling the trenches. This didn't dampen everyone's spirit though, with a real focus towards the finish line, with whole areas cleared and very satisfied volunteers ready to grab hot drinks and get dry.
Well done everyone, this hard work will take the space that little bit closer to being an outdoor classroom. We look forward to welcoming our visitors back any time, keep an eye out for upcoming tasks!
Regular missions at our favourite place - The Wildcat Wilderness - are back! Sign up to a regular fortnightly morning session on Saturdays to help clear some space so that an outdoor classroom can be built in this wonderful community garden. The task involves good old fashioned weed-bashing and digging out of bramble roots and is a great upper-body workout! Please bring your own gloves, and don't wear your best trainers as it can get a bit muddy!
