Movement, giving back, socialising, organising and spreading positivity. These things make me feel good and GoodGym has them all!

11 helpful elves, reindeer and santa fans, hit the pavements of Richmond for a festive feast of good deeds! Delivering Christmas cards for not one, but two organisations - Richmond Good Neighbours and St John the Divine Church.
Starting at the Tap Tavern, cards were divided up for runners to deliver and walkers headed straight to St John the Divine to collect some of their cards and complete delivery to some of the streets in the parish.
One pair racked up nearly 4.5km of zooming about while walkers got at least 4000 steps in, a great chance for members to get involved in their own way.
There are more streets to deliver to for the church, have a look at our upcoming tasks if you think you can help.

Full of festive cheer, Goodgymers from Kingston and Richmond joined the marshalling crew at the Princess Alice Hospice to guide and encourage runners and walkers along the 5km route.
Armed with florescent arrows, maps and loud voices, we spread some GoodGym positivity to each and every person who took part in the event, making sure they were going the right way and giving them a big red boost as they passed! It was inspiring to see so many people, including young children, dogs, buggies and older runners, take on the challenge, many running in memory of people the Hospice has supported through end-of-life care.
The temperatures in Bushy Park were probably close to the North Pole environment by the end but there were still smiles on faces as we all left to seek hot drinks and warm seats.

Our first December task took us to a brand new location for GoodGym. On the other side of the borough, we headed to Hampton Hill to help Greenwood Community Centre with some maintenance task to keep it top shape! And a new location brought two new GoodGymers too, welcome Patriona and Daire.
Tasks included scrubbing the moss between paving slabs, leaf collecting, sweeping, window washing and a rewarding task to clean the beautiful mosaic mural along the side wall. All of these things a great workout for the whole body, along with a good chatter while we worked!
Thank you Greenwood for having us along and we look forward to coming back soon.
