9 GoodGymers met for a delightfully mild October evening featuring bags, brownies and more bags.
If there was a Guinness world record for the number of times ‘bag’ was said within 30 minutes, I think we would have won.
We kicked off at Papa’s by sharing our favourite desserts (it was dessert week on bake off last week) and had a very varied selection. Sophie’s ‘chocolate apple Charlotte’ prompted the most intrigue.
Then we ran, finishing off with a nice up and down to get to St Faith’s Church Hall near North Dulwich.
We met doubting Andrea who questioned our ability to be able to sort through some big bags of clothes for Get Rid Of And Donate’s rough sleeper project. We were up for the challenge though.
We had a jacket bag, jumper bag, T-shirt bag, kids bag, ladies bag, shoe bag, accessories bag, trousers bag and the infamous naughty bag (for miscellaneous items) which we quickly filled, with some essential photographs of notable clothing along the way.
30 minutes past and we were done!
BAGS OF FUN
When we arrived back, Clare shared her Bake Off bake with us, some phenomenal vegan brownies. 😋😋😋
