It's taken 12 years, 4,461 days or 107,064 hours. On November 1st 2022, we marked the day that GoodGym achieved it's 300,000th good deed. That's three good deeds every single hour.


The bell rang at 300k as Louise Cheong of GoodGym Barnet set off on a group run to support Tiny Forest, weeding and preparing an area for saplings to grow in the spring.

The milestone has come at a great time during our Power the Good campaign as we continue to support 2000 community organisations and older people during the cost of living crisis the Autumn.

Good Deed No.1

From the very first good deed to today, it's safe to say we have some remarkable stories and amazing people who've helped make GoodGym what it is. We heard from a couple of GoodGymers that still remember what the first good deed was all about.


We also heard from Harriet.


But what are good deeds?

Every time we attend a community mission, mission or social visit, your online profile logs it as a good deed. You can then see your good deeds pile up, achieve milestone badges and earn new shiny t-shirts to wear proudly to future sessions.

Group sessions


We have completed a whopping 35,574 group sessions so far. These are tasks for local projects, charities and organisations that need a little extra support. GoodGymers are often met with a wide variety of interesting and unique opportunities that not only feel like a good workout, but help to give them that sense of accomplishment; knowing that they have truly helped and made a difference. These are great for people who prefer to GoodGym in a group.



We have completed 14,313 missions. These are one-off tasks for isolated older people. Whether it's changing their smoke alarm batteries, doing a little spot of gardening, moving some furniture or picking up their groceries for the week, these sessions make immediate impact to other people's lives. Many GoodGymers do these sessions in pairs or challenge themselves to walk, run and cycle to as many as possible in one go!

Social visits


We have achieved 36,444 visits to an older person through coach visits and our new social visits pilot. We are currently trialling a new style of older people visits called Social Visits in Southwark, Lewisham, Kingston Upon Thames and Windsor and Maidenhead. They are sessions where a GoodGymer visits an isolated older person to chat, have a brew or simple show a friendly face.

Support from our network

We couldn't accomplish what we do without a huge network of amazing partners, funders, organisations and fellow charities. So we want to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved.


Thank you to everyone. Here's to the next 300k! 🎉
