North Londoner Patrick Luong has reminded us of the beauty of human kindness by running over 100 miles in a single month, stopping along the way to do good deeds such as jobs for the elderly and making deliveries to food banks.

A full-time financial planner by day, Patrick has used his evenings and weekends to go out as part of a fast-growing running community GoodGym. GoodGym welcomes runners of all abilities to combine good deeds with exercise – and Patrick has smashed their record for deeds done in a single month, which previously stood at 20.

Some of Patrick’s good deeds included;

  • Delivering food donations to Lambeth food bank.
  • Gardening at Grenville Allotment Garden, a community garden project in Islington.
  • Helping out at the St Joseph’s Hospice jumble sale which raised over £10,000.
  • Clearing an overgrown garden and dismantling a garden swing for Ingrid, an older Hackney resident.
  • Fixed a garden strimmer and moved a lawn for Gloria who lives in Lambeth.
  • Weekly visits to support an isolated 79-year-old called Cerilia..

‘It’s often the little things – one mission was for a housebound lady whose TV wasn’t working. We got it working for her and she was so chuffed.’ Said Patrick.
