GoodGym Portsmouth has completed more than 850 good deeds in its first year.

They returned to Manor Infant School, the location of their first run, last Wednesday. They helped by digging over the garden and sweeping the playground.

As well as group runs to community projects, GoodGym also does smaller runs to help older people.
