Three of the Barnsley GoodGym crew met up at Worsbrough Community centre for a community mission. Getting in to the spirit of giving and helping, Jason, Mairead and Sharon helped pack up 120 goodie bags for children. Each bag contained some yummy treats, a small toy, pens and a special chart for keeping your teeth nice and healthy.

The team worked well together and the task was quickly completed, with lots of reminiscing going on about a previous visit to the community centre, which involved painting a room followed by the exercise of 12 days of Christmas. On that last visit, the team were greeted with snow covering the ground when they left, thankfully none of that tonight.

The bags will be distributed at local events for children over the festive period.
