Our task tonight did not go according to plan at all... far from it in fact.
But not in a bad way.
We started the evening at Growbaby with a long task list, most of which got written off after only a few minutes of being there. A couple of days ago, Petra had discussed with Wimbledon Dons Local Action Group, a local charity, about collecting a 'few' items for Growbaby and had arranged delivery for when GoodGym were there. When the Dons arrived, their van was stacked to the brim with nappies, wipes, baby food, milk, etc. The biggest donation in Growbaby's history! Good job we had 12 eager GoodGymers to get stuck in and sort it out!
We formed a human chain to transfer the countless boxes from the van to inside Growbaby. Rachel then did an amazing job of directing us all with what needed to be done and where everything needed to go.
As much as there was a lot to do, it was amazing how many hands made light work. We spent a little longer at the task than we usually would but it was certainly satisfying to do so much in the time that we had. Mission accomplished.
