With a heat wave promised in the weeks to come, Re:dish, a local charity which aims to improve the lives of the Reddish community, needed a helping hand to take their winter stock to a near by storage unit and bring out the summer wear ready to be hung for sale in their charity shop.

Forget Porches, Mercedes or Lamborghini's... our transport of choice were 7 gleaming, silver Morrison's trolleys which had been kindly lend to us to rally the donated goods down the high street and to the storage units.

With the carts packed to the brim, 5 GoodGymers and two Re:dish task owners happily rattled our way down the road to complete the half a kilometer relay route. Once at the storage unit, we 'to me'd and to you'd' the summer stock out of storage and swiftly replaced it with the winter stock like a well oiled production line.

We then set off on the return journey back to Re:dish to unload the summer gear ready for the shop floor. Resistance training at its finest!
