51 Month Streak

Helping to support this fantastic charity with their annual festive fun run
Sat 25th Nov at 8:30am
12 GoodGymers and one little helper braved the cold for a volunteering session at Chelmsford Central parkrun.
We did marshalling, barcode scanning, and finish tokening.
Most of us struggled to resist the Mr Kiplings pies afterwards, followed by hot drink queues, large breakfasts and pancakes at our old faithful Wetherspoons.
Well done all, and we'll be repeating this in January!
Wed 22nd Nov at 6:30pm
We went from leafletting to do some leaf-getting at St John's Church and 14 very keen GoodGymers headed out on a dark and cold November night to help out!
We jogged over down the high street and admiring the Christmas lights in the high street to meet Fay, Rich (injured arse and all), and Angela beavering away.
We leapt to work despite the fact we weren't getting S-paid we were still raking it in. Joe hopped in the bin to push the leaves down and Jess was helping until she said 'you're better off alone', to which Joe whistfully replied 'that's what my ex said'. How we laughed. Doug almost on his knees in laughter. After filling four bins we posed for photos while Andy almost committed tree-son by suggesting we shake the trees to get more leaves down. Leaf it out mate. Laurie lead us on a long route on the way back, we admired the gymnastics Russell attempted and made it back to base.
See you for Parkrun volunteering this weekend! And then spoons, baby!
