Tracey Larkin has completed 25 good deeds with GoodGym. Wed 12 May 2021

Tracey has already done 25 good deeds with GoodGym. Instead of doing anything else, they've used their run to go and help people that need their help; digging, lifting, scraping, clearing, planting and weeding. Stuff that makes this a better place to be.

Bowled over!

Wed 12 May
Report written by Kate Frain

Last night we headed back to Chassen Park to help their brand new friends group get ready for launch. We were tasked with digging over a really stubborn flower bed and tidying up the wall, paths and surrounding areas in the bowling green area.

Of course, we set to with our usual gusto and really made a difference, so much that Rachel and Tracey were BOWLED OVER.

Well done everyone and best of luck to the Friends of Group with their endeavours. We will be back soon to help out!

Special mentions to Tracey who's 25th good deed it was last night - congratulations! Also well done to those of us that walked/ ran to the task from various different starting points...getting ourselves back into the swing of running to tasks ready for the return of group runs soon. Can't wait!

Over and out, Kate x

Tonight we joined a brand new Friends of Group to help them start their work on Abbotsfield (Chassen Road) Park! After a briefing from Tracey, our first task was to tidy up the children's play area and we did a great job! Well done and thanks to everyone, especially our little helpers :-D

It looks so much better, thank you!

We will be back in a couple of weeks to help finish off the playground and get the bowling club building ready for re-opening.

See you soon, Kate x

THAT WAS HARDCORE!!!

Report written by Kate Frain

Great to be back at our first park gardening task of the year with the fab Friends of Victoria Park Stretford!

On arrival we saw the awesome new facilities and then went over to the mound which needed turning over. As usual we surprised ourselves with how much we got done especially as there was all sorts of rubble, debris and other random items to weed out! 🌳

Big shout out to Louisa who is new to the team and can wield a gardening fork like a demon! Lots of digging, chatting and penguins 😬👏❤️ 🌳 Lovely to see you all, thanks and well done xx

And now for something completely different

Wed 24 Mar
Report written by Elaine Jackson

This week’s mission was, I think, a first for Goodgym Trafford - a virtual mission. No gardening gloves or hairnets required, just a computer, half an hour, a cup of tea and a box of tissues. Seven Goodgymers were able to review / provide feedback on the ‘Shine a Light on Suicide’ training module, designed to train as many residents, community groups and volunteers about suicide prevention awareness. The content was of a challenging nature but hopefully, those trained would have a improved awareness of the problems and a better chance of helping someone in need.

Tracey Larkin has done a 6 month mission streak. Sat 20 Mar 2021

Tracey just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Tracey a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.
