Tonight a squad of 10 Goodgymers made their way over to Carriers of hope, ready and raring to go. We welcomed Jill Ashley on her first good deed, it was great to meet you :)

Our first mission? Bagging up fruit and veg for tomorrows food hub. With the precision of a well oiled machine the team formed a production line, stuffing bags with a range of items such as peppers, bananas, carrots and potatoes. Maddie, Georgia, Jill, Nigel zipped through the line up with the efficiency of seasoned pro's.

James did a 'crate job' of sifting through the crates to locate the larger ones, which Tasha then swiftly filled with the fruit and veg bags. Greame was appointed as bog roll commander skillfully packing up a duo of loo rolls per bag, ready for people to pick up with their bag of goodness tomorrow.

Stuart stepped onto the scene and was handed the mission of organizing the camping gear, with help from James and Nigel, and Laura rescued an empty tent bag which she decided could be an ideal litter picker holder! (it worked a treat as well - perfect fit!)

Maddie also completed some office work while the rest of the veg production line cleared up.

After taking the scenic route aka getting lost, Joe sauntered in just in time for the tea break - well played Joe! ha! At least you know where it is for next time!

Everyone did a fantastic job, well done gang!

See you next week for more doing good and keeping fit Laura x

Nice one to Maddie and Nigel for puns - I couldn't decide so went with both!
