Flatpack and knack
2 GoodGymers made their way to help an isolated older person in Sheffield.
- Sunday, 8th of August 2021
Here's what Mr Y of S2 had to say about the mission:
Message from the referrer: Hi Rachel and Michelle - Thanks so much for rising to the challenge of communication and flat packs and also running in the rain to get this done. Fabulous job, really appreciated!
Well done to Michelle for getting mission verified and coming on her first mission. We met on a wet Sunday morning and ran together to meet Mr Y. He doesn't speak English, but let us in, despite not knowing who we were or what we were there to do! A bit of sign language later, he was very happy to realise we were there to assemble his wardrobe and we got started.
Several screws, dowels, nails and a couple of hours later, the wardrobe was together. Finishing touches were to align the doors, remove the protective films, tidy up and get a few pics of the final product. Mr Y was very pleased!
