On a chilly Tuesday evening, 8 GoodGym Coventry members kept warm by running 6km and tidying the canal paths for Sustrans and Canal and Rivers Trust. We also featured on BBC CWR on our run!

It was great to see that the paths weren't too litter filled although we did still manage to get quite a lot of bottles, cans and general litter.

We were lucky today and Katherine led the fitness session, working on increasing our speed with some fun races too. All this in the picturesque canal basin with Christmas tree! Great to also see Graeme again tonight :)

Join us to do good in Coventry and get fit

Welcome to GoodGym Coventry! We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every week to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects in our area.

The Task:

We will litter pick along the paths of the canal. Please bring a head torch if you have one along with your gloves. We will stay in small groups so no-one is left alone on the canal.

The Run/walk:

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and it is often possible to walk to the task if you would prefer. We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is.

100 and 10!

Tue 7 Dec
Report written by Liz Pharoah

As we braced for another storm to hit the UK, 9 GoodGym members needn't have worried as we were safe and warm at Clothing Coventry.

We set to our tasks of sorting the donated Christmas food, toiletries and Christmas shoe boxes.

Many stacks of donated food will be used in the hampers for families at Christmas and the shoeboxes will be given as gifts now they have been checked and sorted.

We even had time to sort some men's clothing.

Thanks Laura for leading the fitness session working on running specific drills.

Big congratulations to Vic for achieving her 100th Good deed and Cathy for achieving her 10th Good deed!!!

Keeping it Skip-shape!

Tue 16 Nov
Report written by Liz Pharoah

What a great evening and which a pleasure to see this request come to fruition.

This evening 9 GoodGym Coventry members support Kairos as they develop their outdoor area.

There was an immense amount of budlea and brambles alongside the building as well as garden debris to the rear and even more budlea and brambles further back.

As normal, the GoodGym team were unphased and got on with the task and transformed the outdoor area.

It was really great to meet John and he was a great help with the budlea and brambles clearing the rear with Lil and Susan. Laura and Maddie ensured the paths were clean and tidy and Jackie and Vic ensured that the captain of our skip, Allan, was kept busy keeping it skip-shape. Many thanks to The Kitchens Inc for supporting Kairos in sourcing the skip.

Tidying up the garden area for Kairos

Tue 16 Nov 18:15 pm
All Saints Church, St Margaret's 50 Walsgrave Rd, Coventry, CV2 4EB
Allow for the outdoor area to be used

We will be meeting at Kairos: All Saints Church (St Margaret's, 50 Walsgrave Rd, Coventry CV2 4EB

We will do a fitness session once the task is complete.

Welcome to GoodGym Coventry! We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every week to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects in our area.

The Task:

We will be supporting Kairos with the tidying up of their outside area. There may be brambles. Wear gloves.

Kairos WWT was set up in April 1999 to reach out to a group of women that were perceived to be marginalised and vulnerable; women that were caught up in street prostitution. It was recognised that there were many complex issues that bound the women to prostitution and that there was a clear need for a dedicated project that could build relationships with these women and broker the provision of mainstream services that all to often failed to reach the women.

The Run/walk:

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and it is often possible to walk to the task if you would prefer. We always have a back-marker so no-one is left behind - we're about achieving something together so you'll always be welcome no matter what your pace is.

Tonight 7 members of GoodGym Coventry ran 8km to support Feeding Coventry and the Foleshill Family Hub. It was great to meet Madusha and find out about everyone's news.

There were two tasks tonight so we split into two groups. On to dig holes at the family hub for somer ferns. The other to stocktake at the Social Supermarket.

After succesful completion of the tasks we set off on our return to town. I forgot to take a group photo :(
