Newcastle Report written by Newcastle runner
Despite waking to snow on the ground and a yellow weather warning for snow in place in Newcastle today, three hardy Northerners ventured into the Walker area of the city to deliver leaflets for Food Cycle. Food Cycle is one of our regular task owners. They take donated food from supermarkets at the end of the day and turn it into a hot three course meal, available to anyone who needs it. We’re always happy to help them spread the word.
Special kudos to Aimee who rushed out in her lunch hour, leaving behind her “big coat”, gloves and hat! Michael and I were in awe!
250 leaflets delivered in less than an hour. N-ice! And we’re doing it all again in the Felling area of Gateshead next week. Sign up here and fingers crossed for warmer weather! leaflet delivery for Food Cycle in Felling

Five GoodGymers volunteered at Mowbray Park junior parkrun on a cold, but sunny, Sunday morning, helping 23 junior parkrunners enjoy their run.
Aimee was funnel manager, Richard was run director, while Tanya, Debbie and Michael were cheerful marshals. They helped contribute to a record-breaking number of volunteers at Mowbray Park junior parkrun. Thank you very much for your volunteering efforts, which really helped the event take place.
Many hot drinks and pastries were consumed afterwards and many words of chat were spoken, contributing to a delightful morning. Michael even managed to find his way back to his car afterwards without getting lost.
