10 GoodGymers enjoyed a short run, walk and cycle, in this September heatwave, to Charter house. We welcomed back Dani and welcomed Chloe and Dale on their first deeds, great to meet you both. We also congratulated the superstar that is Laura on her 300th good deed 🎖️

We have really enjoyed doing our monthly slot at Charter house as every time they have had a different task for us to complete, keeping it varied and interesting. This week we met Gianni and his dog Bonnie and our task was to clear a pathway for cyclists taking part in Cov's big bike ride. With a trolley full of tools to choose from we each grabbed one each and set to work, taking it in turns to throw the ball to Bonnie in between.

We raked, swept stones and pulled weeds, working swiftly to make a nice even pathway for the riders to enter the beautiful Charter House gardens. With Dani thirsty for a bit more of a work out Lil and Laura came up with a fitness session plan of uphill pyramids. We said our goodbyes to Deb who was cycling home and Laura P, Louise and Joe set off on their walk back to base then started our uphill pyramids. It was good fun with both Dale and Dani showing us their competitive sides!

Once we were finished we made our way to CBGC and just caught up with Laura and Louise as Joe had left to go home. After cooling down a few of us went for a wee drink to toast Laura’s 300 and present her with a card and a cake made by Deb.

Fab session guys!
