21 Month Streak
Mon 27th Nov at 6:00pm
This evening we returned to Hayden Court Retirement Home for the first time for quite a while.
A big welcome to Paula who was doing her first GoodGym deed!
We had a games evening lined up, the first half being Boccia and the second half being New Age Kurling.
There were 9 residents and 9 GoodGymers, so we mixed up and had two teams of 9.
The red team took the honours at Boccia, winning 4-2 but the blue team took revenge at New Age Kurling, winning 5-1.
It really was a great evening with brilliant company.

This evening we returned to Dell Rose Court for a night of Bingo with the residents.
A big welcome to Will who was doing his first GoodGym deed!
The start of the Bingo was very much going in the favour of the residents as they were rinsing us in the first few games, but luckily we finished strongly and had winners towards the latter stages.
Another great evening and the residents really enjoyed our company.

This evening was our first visit this season to Norwich Foodbank.
Some milestones this week:
A big welcome to Robert P on his first GoodGym experience.
We had two members reaching their 50th good deed, well done to Rosemary and Madeleine!
We also had a member reach their 100th good deed! Congratulations to Jen!
There was a variety of tasks to do, including weighing crate, sorting crates and date sorting tuna/corned beef.
As per usual, another great evening was had.

Now the evenings are dark an hour earlier, it was nice to have an indoor task, and it was also the first of consecutive evenings of Bingo at different care homes.
There were plenty of eager residents who ready and waiting to take on the GoodGymers and show them how it's done!
There was a nice even spread of winners between the residents and GoodGymers, which was nice.

We returned to Soundyard to provide them with some more support ahead of their imminent launch.
The tasks were to paint the front of the studio, paint the internal doors, paint the toilet, paint around the wires and some general tidying up.
Anna and Sophie were as grateful as ever for our support.
The evening was finished with a much overdue visit to the pub for some food and drink.
