2 runners ran to help an isolated older person in Swindon.
- Sunday, 24th of May 2020
Today Kirsty and Gina trekked to the home of the delightful Mrs S to make safe her garden for herself and her 2 children. We arrived and were invited into the back garden via a pathway and we surveyed the task. The garden was on three levels and needed a haircut and a manicure from the winter. Materials supplied included a lawnmower, a brand new, still in the box strimmer and some garden tools. Kirsty and Gina set about the mission in true GG style, and the morning went quickly and included a session of chain gang karaoke. The challenges arose and were dealt with throughout and our newly acquired skills included assembling said new still in box strmimer, staying socially distant and identification of pointy horrible thorn bushes. A quick sweep up and 5 bin bags later we completed the mission and knocked on the door to inform Mrs S where her oldest son was eagerly waiting to reward us with a personally created thank you card.
