Good Gym Launches!

GoodGym has launched in Bexley! 

GoodGym is a community of runners that combine getting fit with doing good.  They stop off on their runs to do manual labour for community organisations and to support isolated older people with social visits and one-off tasks they can’t do on their own.  It’s a great way to get fit, meet new people and do some good.  There are three main strands of the work that GoodGym are doing:  

Crossroads Carer group

Are you a carer?

Are you an adult over 18 caring for someone living in Bexley who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction could not cope without your support?

If so you are entitled to a carer’s assessment.  

Impact in February

With one month under my belt and a whole lot of project planning in the bank I looked forward to February coming around. Looking back, I managed to achieve a lot so far (blowing my own trumpet...) and Feburary saw 4 key milestones reached:

The Great Weight Debate Conference

This is a fantastic opportunity for groups and individuals to be involved in a local conversation about tackling Bexley’s obesity problem. We have the second highest obesity rates in London! So we need your group to join the conversation and share your ideas about what more we can do.
