Christmas lights on display along our 4km run to INS, a charity in Twickenham who help adults with neurological conditions, their facilities needed a bit of cleaning and tidying so we jumped into window cleaning mode. It didn't take long for our gang of Goodgymers to get them all sparkling, inside and outside.
It was good to hear all the chatting while working, even an impromptu physio session for T! Job finished in record time and the staff at INS were very impressed.
A group of us ran the 4km back to Richmond taking in the sights - a longer run than usual but a great way to finish off a Monday evening.
Great work everyone!

Our monthly Richmond Furniture Scheme visit saw three brave Goodgymers turn up, despite less than favourable conditions. Pippa impressively ran 13kms from Chiswick to the task itself in Twickenham!
Once we had arrived, RFS’s Rob assigned us to clearing the old red furniture from the outside space. The furniture was used originally by the Whitton Social Club, previously based at the RFS building.
Through the help of the trusty moveable wooden sled, which was expertly operated by Sam, we set about moving the larger bits to the workshop area so that they could later be sorted out into what could be recycled and used again.
This task certainly provided an upper body workout as well as putting those hours of assembling jigsaw puzzles to good use, ensuring that all the furniture fitted into the assigned area!
Overall, all the pieces fitted and the job was well done!

After another wet and windy autumnal day it was a relief to be inside this evening!
After a brisk 3k run from the Quaker Centre to Surbiton, we were greeted with another fun, cathartic task at the charity Growbaby. Tonight we were sorting out donations by either throwing away, organising or displaying...
It was a hive of activity all over the premises. Petra and Dave got to grips with organising big stacks of cot beds, play mats, baths and highchairs; Adam and Rachel moved and stored the numerous nappies that had been donated; Nina and Jana sorted and displayed all the cute wellies and winter coats...
All of these tasks mean that Growbaby will be a bit more ready for the 50+ families who will be descending on the site tomorrow to get some help and collect much needed donations. A job well done and a sense of wellbeing achieved by us all :)
