GoodGym is launching in Portsmouth this May
We're launching in our 43rd area with support from Portsmouth City Council
April 25, 2018
GoodGym Portsmouth will be led by local trainer Katie Carew-Robinson. Each week she’ll be leading a group of runners on a short run before stopping off to support a community organisation with a physical task like planting trees, shifting earth, or clearing derelict land.
For our first run, we’re running to help out at Fratton Global Garden and Manor Infants School with some digging, shifting and painting.
In addition to the weekly group run organised by Katie, GoodGym runners can also choose to be paired with an isolated older person and commit to a weekly social visit and/or help with one-off household tasks. The GoodGym befriending scheme has been proven to reduce loneliness and improve wellbeing.
