20 of us turned up to help Keith at the Norwich Foodbank. Robert led the runners from the Forum, and we welcomed one new GoodGymer, Diana.

We quickly got to work – Keith sent some of us over to the other side of the warehouse, while Bill, our very own GoodGymer who also regularly volunteers at the foodbank, managed those of us that were sorting donations.

We sorted hundreds of tins of beans, spaghetti, vegetables and more, and we only had two spillages!

Time went by so fast. Its such a satisfying task getting everything in order, knowing that we’re playing a part in helping people get healthy, satisfying food – with a few treats thrown in, of course! Rachel even said that she wishes her day job was more like this as you really feel like you’ve accomplished something.

After just 45 minutes we’d achieved so much. Keith thanked us for our help – the donations we were sorting were bought by the Trussel Trust with financial donations, as they’ve seen a drop in physical donations at supermarkets.

After a few group photos, we all departed knowing we’d all done a good job!
