Only after signing up for the mission did I realise I was not only out of my GG area but totally out of my comfort zone! At the meet up point we're volunteers from other organisations as well as GoodGym people &I needed not have worried, as the staff compiling the eats welcomed us with smiles and even mini croissants! (see pic*) They gave us the packages and we paired up and were on our way in short order.
I hadn't done this task before so I was paired up with Jo who had and had met some of the recipients in the past. Walking &talking (masks on of course) was great therapy and as we only had 5 deliveries to drop off, it took less than an hour. Must admit if it hadn't been for Jo it would have probably taken me ages - I have a poor sense of direction! * Volunteers in pic not from Good Gym and kindly gave permission to be used in this report.
