Will he find us?!

Wednesday 8th November 2023

Written by Laura

Tonight the GoodGym Leeds gang headed back to Ash Road Residents to help finish off washing the Telecoms boxes & removing graffiti in the local area.

We were concerned that Adam wouldn't find us roaming the streets but thanks to technology he managed it!

It was lovely to meet Nisha on her first GoodGym mission; welcome to the madness Nisha!

The Bucket List

Wednesday 1st November 2023

Written by Laura

Tonight 5 GoodGymers plus an honorary member went to help Ash Road Residents Association clean the beautifully painted telecoms boxes in the local area.

It was a physical task that involved carrying buckets around the streets of Headingley. We made a good start and will go and finish the rest next week.

It was my 30th GoodGym mission tonight, Helen and Katie are both at 119, Katie is on 43 & it was lovely to welcome back Jenny who's on 74! What a great achievement, well done everyone.

Even if we're just Paintin' in the Dark

Wednesday 11th October 2023

Tonight it was great to see two newcomers Emily & Amelia at GoodGym Leeds! Welcome ladies.

6 GoodGymers ran to down to help Ash Road Residents Association to continue to paint the very long green fence we've been working on for a few months! It got a little dark towards the end & we struggled to see if we were painting in patches so hopefully it will look OK in the cold light of day!!

Jane from the Residents Association helped us & had a smile on her face as always :)

Park & Pick

Saturday 30th September 2023

Written by Laura

This morning 3 GoodGymers headed to Woodhouse Moor park run where Katie & Helen ran & Laura volunteered & did some leafleting for GoodGym. This Parkrun was the first outside London to set up & was super busy with hundreds of people running.

We then went for a coffee & met up with Ash Road Residents Association to do some litter picking.

So, we had a run, a social & a community mission all in one go. Well done guys, it was a great morning!
