The great clothing give away

Tue 28 Sep
Report written by Joel Wiles

Great session in Westminster this evening helping an amazing community group Get Rid and Donate to distribute a van load of clothing donations to Westminster's homeless community.

making the dash down from Green Park to Charring Cross visualising the London Marathon finishing line as we ran.

Meeting Andrea and her team with the van full of clothing donations that had been expertly sorted by the amazing GoodGym Lambeth crew the night before.

Ritsu, Sophie and Sam getting stuck in lifting, shifting and giving out tonne bags full of clothes, tents, sleeping bags and shoes. fast paced and so impactful great to be part of helping so many people particularly as we move into the colder months of the year.

Within an hour the van was empty and we were on our way with a job very well done! Thank you for coming along, we will be back at Rhythms of Life in a couple weeks and be great to have you along!

All Chipping In

Sun 19 Sep
Report written by John Shirley

On a warm morning, we all eventually arrived at the meadow, not easy to find for newcomers (we all got lost the first time).

Alison, Paul and John shovelled a huge pile of woodchip into wheelbarrows, to be dispersed along the length of a long path. Caitlin, on her 15th Good Deed, used a rake to spread the woodchip, while rake-less Mali improvised with a special shoe-shuffle.

Becca and Beth were busy cutting back overhanging foliage; in fact Beth was working so fast she was just a blur (see picture). Sophie and Karen were also busy keeping untidy growth at bay. Steve moved some heavy paving stones, then sawed back some over-long branches.

This time, as well as Friends of CREOS we were joined by friend of everyone, Gus Dog. After we'd finished, the rain started to fall, having kindly held off until we completed our tasks.

Crouch End Open Space (CREOS) Volunteering Day (September 2021)

Sun 19 Sep 11:00 am
Greenways, London, N8 8JJ
Our monthly woodland regeneration session with the CREOS volunteering team

Join us as we help the team at CREOS, a local conservation charity, maintain and improve a lovely green oasis in Crouch End.

CREOS looks after the meadows and wooded pathways of the Crouch End Open Space. GoodGym runners have been helping them maintain this beautiful patch of land for a while now, and the CREOS team always has lots for us to do.

We'll meet for an 11am start and aim to work for two hours. Stay as long as you can... but if you can make it to 1pm you'll get to enjoy a picnic* provided by the CREOS team. (Though this may be contingent on the weather!)

Here is a link to our start location- over at CREOS Meadow:
