A squad of 9 enthusiastic GoodGymers ventured out tonight distributing leaflets for the christmas tree-cycling collection service. We welcomed back Rob - great to see you and catch up :)
We made our way over to the Cheylesmore area, meeting up with Chris and Claire along the way, navigating the streets using google maps and Dale - thank you! Together, in 50 minutes we covered 10 roads, delivering 504 leaflets with a distance of around 3 miles.
Well done everyone and great team effort from taskforce with leading a second team and guiding.
Shout out to Graeme who intended to come tonight but couldn't make it but is gonna deliver some leaflets tomorrow - nice one Graeme!

Tonight ten Goodgymers came ready to give a helping hand to Clothing Coventry. We welcomed back Susanne for one night only as she flies back to Germany this week - it was great to have you with us tonight!
We came loaded with donations and bags which Jackie, Nigel and Susanne walked ahead with, leaving the runners to warm up. Once we arrived, we gathered inside and the task owner, Jo, dished out the to do list. With the outside being a bit wet we remained inside this eve and squeezing into every nook and cranny, we sorted the piles that needed our attention including coats, mens clothes and shoes.
Once we were done Nigel and Jackie started on the walk back with Laura P joining to save her legs after a mammoth run on Saturday. They were followed by the rest of us who ran back to base for our cool down.
Thanks for all you efforts tonight everyone :) Hope to see you all next week!

A valiant group of 11 Goodgymers assembled to assist Feeding Coventry this evening.
Karen was there to welcome us and we set to work to conquer lots of leaves and declutter cupboards.
Armed with rakes and brushes, Jackie, Laura, James and Lil battled the autumn leaves like knights in shining armour, clearing the path and piling the leaves in one area to decompose.
The rest of the possy headed indoors to tackle the cupboard conundrum. The cupboard was overflowing with a mixture of tat, toys and forgotten treasures (a very antique bingo caller) which we emptied, sorted and then started to put back.
The team did a grand job sweeping up the leaves and restoring order to the cupboards. Karen was extremely happy with the progress we had made and our efforts will make it a lot easier for them to finish off.
Well done everyone!

A group of 11 dedicated Goodgymers embarked on a double dose of good deeds tonight where we managed to help both Coventry Boys and Girls club and Clothing Coventry - AMAZING!
We were originally booked in for just the painting but then Clothing Coventry called for our support and you guys delivered once again!
We split into teams with Georgia, Jackie, Roopa, Nigel and Laura on Team CBGC and Lil, James, Chloe, Maddie, Greame and Dale on Team CC. Team CBGC didn’t have far to go with this being our usual meeting place, while Lil lead the warm up and run for Team CC to head over to Clothing Coventry.
Listening to some 80s tunes, Team CBGC painted a wall in the cafe a beautiful shade of white and finished off the edges and patchy bits in the toilets following our previous visit. Team CBGC had lots of fun sorting the piles of kids clothes into appropriate size categories.
Thank you so much for all your effort, you are brilliant!
Join us next week for yet more sorting at Clothing Coventry, we are giving them a bit of extra support at the moment to prepare them for the warehouse move which is coming soon.
