Stuart Leaver has done their first good deed with GoodGym.
Stuart is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.

Despite it absolutely pelting it down just as we started our group run last night, the wet conditions did not dampen our spirits! Perhaps it was because we had lots of new faces to welcome to their very first session - put your hands together for Alice, Abigail, Stuart, Jamal and Abby!
After a bit of a drenching on the way down to Balham, we arrived to find some of the group meeting us there had already started on the various jobs for the evening. So while Jamal and Abby had made a good inroads smashing up an old shed (good for releasing stress on a Monday), Richard from Transition Town welcomed the rest of the group. He explained that a group they wanted to create a beautiful learning space for the children, but given the size of the project they needed as much help as possible.
So while a few of us joined the wrecking crew, another group went out to the back of the school to carry on emptying the leaf pens so the lovely rich mulch could be used to grow plants in the raised beds. Meanwhile the third lot of GGers tackled some serious tonne bags of soil, doing an excellent job on mixing it all in.
After three quarters of an hour of hard work, it was great to see how much we could get done together. Hope you've all dried off!
Next week we're off for hopefully a bit of a drier task painting a room at Sound Minds. There are also two missions going on through the week - our regular Friday lunchtime mission to help serve lunch to homeless people and one to deliver hot meals to vulnerable families in the area on Sunday. Have a happy week, Goodgym!
