Tonight's task was to help out at the lovely charity The Friends of the Earth.
The runners were Jonny, James and Rachel, with the walkers Miriam, Amy and Sofeen joining us at the task.
We were welcomed by a nice sign on the door before Karen gave us our tasks to do. It was a nice mix, with Jonny doing some vacuuming, Miriam and Amy painting and then James, Rachel and Sofeen did the outdoors stuff, which was sweeping, tidying and litter picking.
We spent a good half an hour or so and got plenty done, Miriam taking plenty of pictures.
Once done the walkers headed off and the runners ran the 2k back to 1000 Trades, making it a nice 4k run in total :)

On a rainy Tuesday evening we met at Dad's Lane for some brick moving! Amy was first to arrive, then Laura had run up (completing an impressive 4 miles!), and we all got stuck in , moving bricks from one pile in the front to the back garden. This is so that contractors can make a start on the paving (exciting!). Sofeen arrived shortly afterwards as a surprise addition to the crew, this was welcomed by all as it sped up the work as we implemented a rally with wheelbarrowers and stackers and tidyers. All this in the rain! Great work all!
Afterwards it was time for a hot drink in the warm and welcoming community centre that many Brum GoodGymers have helped to make into the space it is today.

Birmingham Report written by Birmingham runner
This report covers two missions to assist Narthex; the first was Rose who kindly attended on Saturday 4th February and did a great job at sorting through baby items, such as: nappies, wipes and milk. As you will see from the photos, this made a big difference and means these items are now more efficiently organised and easily accessible.
They sorted through baby food and kitchen items, which included lots of crockery and a great mix of cups/mugs, including an 'Oldi' mug as a play on the supermarket Aldi. They also did a great job, as shown in the photos, and Miriam even got to hang around with her fans at the end... hence this week's title.
The 5 of them across the two dates did a great job and we look forward to returning on Monday 20/02/2023 and, in Rose's case, on Saturdays.

Tonight was a little different as we didn’t quite make the task. Jonny’s calve’s played up, so we checked with task owner Jon and he was more than happy to put the task back a few weeks.
Eve and James still went for a run and did a good 6k in total, followed by Miriam and Tom meeting them in 1000 Trades after, so alls well that ends well :)
