Final Wednesday Task Of 2022.. 🎉

This evening myself, Holly, James, Alys, Katie, and Lauren met at one of Woking food banks storage facility to make up Xmas food bags ready for delivering for families in need this Xmas. 🎄

For me it was great being back with the group as I have been recovering from a back injury, it was great seeing everyone.

We had to prepare 86 family bags and 55 single person bags, we had a shopping list of what items needed to go into the bags. It was a slow start but once we figured out where the products were there was no stopping us.

Myself Holly and Katie where on the family bags while Lauren and Alys where on the singles. Once we got into a rhythm there was no stopping us.

James arrived a little late but once he was shown the ropes he was like a machine he did go rogue for a few minutes but was put back on the right path by Holly…. 😂

The bags consisted of many everyday essentials for example Pasta, Cereal, Tea, Beans, Biscuits, and many more...

I switched my roles to the person who had to tie up the bags and make a pretty bow… and then make space for where the bags had to be put.

While busy working away Allison made us all Tea and hot chocolate which warmed us all up on this cold night.

By the end there was hardly any floor space available all you could see where red bags everywhere.

We were told that the Salvation Army would be delivering the food bags to families in need in the area in the coming days.

We do still have one more volunteering task this Sunday at the Junior Park Run, if you are available please sign up as I know plenty o roles are still available.

Hope you all have a fantastic Xmas and will see you all in the New Year….. 🎉
