Your chance of rain this evening is 100%

This was the BBC's welcoming message on the morning of our good-deeding jaunt. From 7pm, there's a 100% chance of heavy rain. Yet, despite our certain drenching, our steady group of sign-ups continued to grow throughout this grey Wednesday.

So convened and huddled our group of 9, under the eaves of the Naval Colleges, sharing our stories of the week and reconnecting together against the cold.

And we were in celebratory mood, congratulating Kerry on an amazing 50 and Julian on an astounding 400 good deeds!! Your presence make our volunteering community so wonderful, and your efforts make our wider community that bit better - thank you, both :)

We followed this by warming up and thinking ahead to our task, which was this week at the lovely More2Childcare. Taking a longer route through an empty Greenwich Park, we arrived to friend of the group, Eve, who showed us her myriad collection of cleaning, scrubbing, and sanitising tasks. We removed stains and remnants of toddler play and learning, gave the floors a sparkle and shine, and finished the evening with a mop and tidy.

I know just how much Eve and the More2 appreciate our regular visits and efforts, and it felt good leaving knowing this space was that bit nicer for the kids arriving on the Thursday.

Great work, folks!!
