Here’s your weekly round up of all things GOOD!

COMMUNITY EFFORTS


 - Over lockdown I think we all felt that itch of wanting to get out and do something instead of being stuck inside. Well Stevie Bradley, currently in a two week quarantine after returning to our isle, has decided that he doesn’t need to wait until he can go out again. On Friday, Stevie began running 5 half marathons in 5 days to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK, all from within his own living room. After his dad, Stephen’s, own experience with the cancer earlier this year, Stevie wants to raise money and awareness for the cause to ensure more people can catch the issue early on like his father. Stevie has already raised over £1,000 for the cause, which you can donate to here, and will document his progress over on his Instagram @stevie_bradley. We know we’ll be keeping an eye on his progress, it’s kind of like Gogglebox, but for runners. Amazing stuff Stevie!

You may remember in our round up the other week that we told you about Lewis Malone, who was planning on cycling up and down the Sloc 12 times for the Children’s Centre. Well the moment finally arrived for Lewis to take on his challenge. Lewis completed his 12 laps, amounting to about 75km, yesterday in the glorious sunshine, although probably very hot in cycling lycra. He has already smashed his fundraising goal of £1,200 with just over £1,300 (at time of writing), but you can still support him and the Children’s Centre by donating to his Just Giving page here. Congratulations on completing your challenge Lewis and raising so much for such a good cause!

ONLINE BEST BITS

Not necessarily something brand new this week, but if you’re looking for something to binge on YouTube then let me introduce you to Hot Ones. The interview based show can essentially be boiled down to ‘celebrities answering questions and gasping for water.’ What this involves is interviewing some of your favourite celebrities (an impressive bunch including Paul Rudd, ScarJo and Key and Peele) whilst they attempt to eat a row of spicy chicken wings, getting progressively hotter as they go along. As well as the schadenfreude (enjoyment in someone else’s pain) of watching your favourite celebrities try and stomach the hot wings, the interviewer, Sean Evans, is also very good at his job. There’s maybe something in getting people more vulnerable as they cry tears of pain but, no matter what the reason, these interviews get really interesting. If you want a taste of the show then you can watch the Gordon Ramsey episode below, which is, to put it in the words of the man himself, a really f****ing good one. If you enjoy this episode, the hundreds of other videos can be found on the ‘First We Feast’ YouTube channel or by clicking to their playlist here.

Remember that game you played when you were little when you would pretend that the floor is lava? Well, because everything needs to be made into content nowadays, Netflix has created their very own show which has been cleverly called ‘Floor Is Lava.’ The show finds contestants attempting to cross a room without falling into the ‘lava’ (which is probably just coloured slime). However, it’s a little bit more difficult then in your living room as the contestants have to swing and jump their way across. If your looking for something that’s easy to watch and a bit of fun then try this one out, think Total Wipeout but with slime instead of Richard Hammond’s back garden pond. P.s. Netflix, if you need someone to join your tv show naming team, I’m available. I’ll even give you my idea for a dating show called ‘first dates,’ oh wait… never mind.
