"We always underestimate our powers of leafleting!"

I will be honest, I really wasn't sure we would get the task done last night. We had been asked to leaflet for St Oswald's Hospice "Light up a life" campaign, and had 200 leaflets to distribute in the Gosforth area. For just three of us, it felt like a bit of a tall order.

Charlotte completed the first part of this task solo by going to Gosforth to collect the leaflets in the afternoon then handing them over to me as I made my way to the task. Dream work or what?!

Louise. Aimee and I got started as quickly as we could from the meeting point, covering a zig zag of streets near to Gosforth High Street. We had a back up plan to meet again on Thursday if we couldn't get finished in time but within just 40 minutes, all the leaflets were done apart from one very soggy one that I caught on a gate and ended up having to bin!

It was a great task and one we hope to repeat for St Oswald's Hospice very soon.
