Led by Mark Gilyead

A busy session at GROAD (Get Rid Of And Donate) in North Dulwich. Karen & I arrived in the rain, and started out helping to shift some of the latest stock into a storage shed out the back of the community hall. As the sun came out, the donations started to arrive: boxes and bags of all sorts of unwanted or unneeded bits for us to sort through, organise and then re-box and re-bag: teenie tiny babygrows and bibs; jeans for all sizes, ages and genders; kitchenware and crockery; jigsaw puzzles and books; trainers and boots; toiletries and pillow cases. Almost everything dropped off to us was in great condition. I'm sure that the onward recipients of the gorgeous Burberry jumpers will be delighted - and I hope that the donated bikinis get some use this summer too. Goes without saying that by the time Karen & I locked up, the rain re-started... another damp run home.
