3 GoodGymers went to Foleshill Community centre to help clean in preperation for painting next week. All the building and plastering work is complete which has left a thick layer of dust everywhere. We joined a group of volunteers to hoover, dust and sugar soap every surface to get it ready for Monday when the volunteers will start painting. Katherine and Laura arrived and started hoovering what will soon be the new cafe and when Lil arrived we went on to wipe down all the radiators, desks and other cabinets in the adjacent room. Was so nice to see so many people chipping in, there was a real community spirit.
We have been working with the Social Supermarket since the beginning and have a close connection with the charity, we are so happy to see this all coming together for them, exciting times ahead!

Six goodgymers met in a Tesco car park on the outskirts of Coventry this week for a change! Our task was to deliver leaflets on behalf of Myton Hospice to let local residents know that Santa Claus is coming to town and visiting their local supermarket to raise funds for the hospice.
We split into two groups and took a side of the road each to leaflet. The roads we had been allocated by Myton Hospice were a little bit like a rabbit warren with lots of closes and crescents on both sides, but we used the bright lights of Tesco to help us navigate back to our start point. We walked/ran 4km and posted 360 leaflets in an hour- well done team!

We have been meeting at Coventry Boys and Girls Club for some time now and tonight we were able to help them with a long overdue tidy up of their youth work room cupboard.
The cupboard is used to house all the arts, craft supplies and games that are regularly used by the girls and boys that attend the club. Our task was to neatly box up all the items so that this makes it a more pleasant experience for the people that use it.
When we arrived all the items had been pulled out of the cupboard and all the new clear boxes were ready for us to sort and fill, the task owner also wanted some shelving from another room brought into the craft cupboard. Deb and Jackie set to work bringing the shelving unit through whilst Maddie, Andy and I started on grouping different items together ready to store. We were all sorting the like things together, paints, scissors, paper and games. Jackie and Deb did some doodling to see if all the pens worked and Maddie had fun tidying up the halloween costumes and decorations. Once the items were grouped we started to fill the clear boxes with the supplies.
Finally it was the good bit, packing it all onto the shelves nice and neat! The new boxes made it easy to stack everything on top of one another, maximising the storage space and they also make it much easier to see what’s inside of them. The floors were swept then it was time to pack up and go.
Great work everyone! Check out the before and afters - the before pictures were from a meeting with the task owner to discuss what needed doing, what a difference!
