What a way to celebrate hitting our 1000th Good Deed!

We started the day with a running session at our other Friday run group... shhh dont tell Goodgym

Then we made our way to Costa for fueling... shhh dont tell Goodgym or Run Active

Eventually, we made it to Thames Hospice with a new member in tow... Rajinder....

Our lovely task owner May handed us over to the even lovelier Jonathon who asked us to sort through 30 odd bags of mens clothes into clothing type!

What did we learn?

we dont have to take our clothes off to have a good time.. oh no!

Remember that song?

It felt like a trip back to the 80's with our runners modeling caps, leather jackets and waistcoats....

45 minutes later all the bags had been sorted

Job done... we then headed into the shop and a few quid was spent by a couple of us before heading outside for our 1000 photoshoot!

Well done to SutYee for the brillant banner (which doubles up as a mirror - double whamy!)

And to finish off an already awesome morning was lunch at our local grease lightening cafe .... shhhh just dont tell anyone...
