Melanie Young

GoodGym Bristol

We're a group of local residents who run, walk, or cycle to help out community projects and older people in Bristol.

From hanging curtains for Mr H because he can't manage it on his own, to shovelling a tonne of compost for the Food Growers Group so they can grow vegetables - every GoodGym session is different.

Area activator

The area activator for Bristol is Melanie Young (she/her).
