On Sunday, these 3 Heroes left their day of rest behind to go and help out a charity called Hope in Action.
They were painting bedrooms and dismantling old beds ready for new tenants as they are supported out of homelessness.
Amazing work guys, especially at such short notice ⭐⭐⭐

8 Goodgymers were out in force out this eve to help out our friends at Clothing Coventry once again.
Armed with donations we arrived at the warehouse ready to embark on a mission to conquer the formidable piles of shoes, coats and halloween dress up.
Listening to the 'Greatest Hits' including classics such as Ghosbusters theme tune and Careless whispers we sorted through the mountains of shoes and coats putting them into size order and hung all the halloween costumes on rails.
Nigel you deffo should have kept that Mario hat, it really suits you and goes beautifully with the Goodgym tee!
We got so much sorted! Well done everyone, you guys rock!

9 Goodgymers gathered this evening for a visit to help Coventry Mind with renovating their outdoor space.
After chatting about our weekends and congratulating Greame on his marriage on Saturday :) we enjoyed a windy jog over to Coopers Lodge where Laura G, the task owner, was waiting for us. Joe walked and Mohammed cycled to meet us there.
The garden is such a lovely space with lots of potential however it has become a little overgrown and the sheds are looking a bit tired. Before the task owner had even finished explaining what jobs needed doing Greame was straight in with a tool scrapping the weeds from in between the paving slabs, loving the enthusiasm!
With a shed to paint and the weeding to do we split up to tackle the different jobs. Georgia, Joe, Mohammad, Chris and James made light work of painting the shed and even managed to paint the smaller one too. Greame, Matt and the trio of Laura's (Laura P, Laura G and Laura D) weeded, swept and raked the paving and flower beds making the area look much more pleasant.
With the nights now drawing in it was getting darker, so we cleared away the tools and made our way into the kitchen where the task owner had kindly left out some goodies for us.
We said goodbye to Joe and Mohammad who were cycling and walking home and then ran back to CBGC. With time for a fitness sessions we used the maze at Starley Gardens. Taking it in turns, ran around the maze while the rest of the group did an exercise of the runners choice.
Super work tonight all!
More painting to be done next week at Coventry Boys and Girls club, hope to see you there!
