Not quite WRAPPING up for Christmas

Stockport Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

Last night was the start of GoodGym Stockport's festive tasks amd saw 8 GoodGymers arrive on foot, wheels or ... sleighs to our local Care4Calais warehouse.

We arrived to find the warehouse packed to the rafters with toys, games and merriment, all ready to be wrapped and taken to children across the city.

Like a production line of GoodGym elves, we happily wrapped and stuck and labelled, while discussing the best way to wrap a football!! There's a technique if you didn't know!!

After a solid 45 minutes, all the presents were wrapped and ready to go and await the gleeful faces of those unwrapping them!

A wonderful task, and we're ready for round two next week!

High FLYERING birds!

Stockport Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

Together Trust is a local charity and one GoodGym Stockport regularly support. They are arranging a wonderful sporting event to bring the local community together to watch the England V Wales football game to raise funds for their charity.

Our task was to help the Together Trust to advertise the event by running leaflets out to the houses of those in the local community.

Our run began from our regular base, Life Leisure Centre in Cheadle, and we braved the cold, dark night to set off on foot to our delivery destination.

We paced the streets for 7km , nattering as we went, posting the flyers and gently jigging to beat the cold, before happily running back to base.

A nightMAYOR run!

Stockport Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

A Bed Every Night Charity supports people who are sleeping rough or at risk of doing so. It is a cross-sector, pan-Greater Manchester service that comes with a clear philosophy that everyone should have somewhere safe to stay.

A Bed Every Night has supported more than 3,000 people and pioneered improved access to health and housing. It has contributed to a reduction in rough sleeping of 67% over four years.

To support funding for the charity, each year in Manchester, a 24 Hour run is held and particpants' miles are donated to raise much needed support for the charity and those it helps.

Each year, GoodGym Stockport lace up our trainers, switch our group run day to a Wednesday and run 5km to help to raise money and awareness of this local and worthy charity.

This year, running clubs from far and wide collaborated, both in person and virtually for this annual occasion.

We got out in the cold, brisk night and bagged a respectable 18km for the charity.

Same again next year!

DRESSED up and somewhere to go

Stockport Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

This cold dark November evening saw 6 super GoodGymers set off on a downhill jog to help down at the wonderful Care4Calais warehouse.

Care4Calais is one our regular tasks and one that always fills our hearts with warmth. The staff work tirelessly to get much needed clothes, toys and toiletries to those who are most in need after arriving in the country and so any help we can offer, we are all hands at the deck.

We sorted through an array of clothes and toys, filtering out those to keep and add to the donation stocks, and putting aside any that were not suitable.

The question to ask is 'would you feel a sense of enrichment by

We sorted and shelved, uncovering some interesting clothing items in the process!

We'll be back in a few weeks to help with the Christmas wrapping drive!

Run like the wind

Stockport Report written by Sian Dobson Hughes

To shake off our legs, the dark nights and welcome any newcomers, this week's group run was a leisurely Run Talk Social - a chance to catch up, enjoy a mindful run with friendly faces, (illuminated by leftover Halloween night lights) and learn more about GoodGym.

We braved the elements, making our way around a 5km circuit, the perfect mixture of road and park running leaving us feeling refreshed and clear headed.
