Mannequin hands make light work

Monday 5th February

Written by Caprice McWilliams

Tonight's session was to help our good friends at Hope Housing. Runners Julie, Daryl and Caprice met for the Group Run to the session. James, Milly, Sophie and Emma made their own way to the task. A big welcome to Emma, Sophie's sister. It was lovely meeting her and we hope to see her at future sessions. At the task we were met by Tony who got us to work clearing and tidying a store room. We created a chain to move everything out of the store room. Emma, Sophie, and Milly got to work sweeping and Julie found a dustpan and brush to clear up the mess. The contents of the room were then returned in a more orderly fashion. With easy accessible item located at the front. These items were to be taken to Hope's Charity Shop located in Southbourne. Many hands make light work as we were all done and dusted in 30 minutes. Next month Tony would like us to tackle the large store room so that should be fun. Next week it's Quiz at Abbeyfield Retirement Home. See you there!!

Hope is where the heart is

Monday 15th January

Written by Caprice McWilliams

What a great turn out for tonight's session. Eleanor, Chloe, Julie, Jenny and Caprice met for the Group Run with Daryl leading the way on his bike. It's was great seeing Jenny again, it's been too long!! It was lovely seeing Julie again, she had been away due to an injured foot, fingers crossed that it's on the mend!

The runners made their way through town and were met at the task by James and Milly who had made their own way to the session.

Tonight's task was to sort donations for Hope's Charity Shop. The group had to categorise and bag up lots of clothing, such as Men's, and Ladies winter and summer clothing, mens and ladies shoes. There were even some dog toys thrown in for good measure! After a good rummage and a sort out the GoodGymers managed to sort everything out in no time at all. Many hands make light work!

We'll be back again to help Tony in a month's time so please do sign up to the session.

Let it soap, let it soap, let it soap!

Monday 18th December 2023

Written by Caprice McWilliams

Eleanor, Daryl and Caprice met up for the group Run and made a dash through the Xmas Market, it was busy out there!! Viki, Milly and James met the runners at the task and it wasn't long until Mark and Tony got them to work. The mission tonight was to give the 'Soap Workshop' a good tidy. Millie, James, Eleanor, Viki and Caprice made a chain to move everything out of the workshop. What with it being a soap making workshop the place smelt divine but the floor was incredibly slippery. It was like an indoor skate rink, luckily everyone managed to stay upright!! Once the workshop was tidy, the guys then sorted through and organised the boxes that had been removed. Once everything had found their rightful place, the boxes were moved back into the workshop. Sadly, it was Mark's last day working with us as he is leaving his current role at Hope Housing. We have had some fun times helping him and as thank-you he gave everyone a little soap gift set, what a lovely gesture. It won't be the last time that we will be visiting Hope Housing, we have some dates already lined up for next year. The next one at Hope will be 15th January. Merry Christmas to everyone and we will see you in January for GoodGym's January Challenge! ❤️🌲❤️🌲❤️🌲

Written by Caprice McWilliams

Eleanor, Daryl and Caprice met for the short Group Run to Hope Housing. The runners were met by Mark and Julie and and a van load of donations. It wasn't long before they were joined by Janet who made her own way to the session. Big congratulations were in order as tonight Janet completed her 50th good deed ❤️ Well done and hopefully she'll be rocking her black T-shirt at next week's session! Tonight's task was to sort through donations bagging up winter and summer clothing, once the bags were full they were labeled stating if the contents were men, women or children. Another successful session helping our friends at Hope Housing. One week to go until the Care Home Quiz and this month Janet will be the Quiz Master. How exciting! We hope to see you there!

Pop up the tent, pop it up!!

Tuesday 29th August 2023

Written by Caprice McWilliams

Ellie, Caprice and Neil ran to the session but due to some leg injuries, Daryl had to cycle to the task (Daryl had been lawnmower racing at the weekend!! ) This week's session was to help our friends at Hope Housing. This time Mark had us sorting donations that had come straight from Boomtown Festival. Tents, sleeping bags, roll mats and pillows galore. The group sorted through the donations, throwing away anything that was damaged or that couldn't be cleaned. This did mean checking multiple pop-up tents. Putting them up wasn't a problem but they're not called pop-down tents for a reason!! Ellie and Daryl got to grips pretty quickly whilst Neil and Caprice wrestled trying to fit a four man pop-up tent into a two man tent bag!! Like true festival style, it started to rain so the team quickly made some trips to the skip before heading home. We will be back at Hope Housing in a few weeks time, next week is a flyer-drop to help our friends at Cherry Tree Nursery. See you there!
