Motherwell is a local charity that does amazing work to support women and their families in our community. They have spent many months collecting and sorting donated uniform to support families that aren't able to provide their own. With the pandemic leaving many families in financial hardship, the uniform exchange has been greatly welcomed. Now that children are back at school again (with many having had growth spurts), it means that families are finding themselves in the position of having to provide another set of uniform for their children.

Tonight, 11 members made their way to one of two venues. Our task this week was to move the boxes from St. Paul's which is where the uniform was being stored, to Motherwell's new offices about 2 miles away. One team loaded up the boxes into the vans/cars at St. Pauls while the other team unloaded at the new offices.

Now that all the uniform is in the right place, the clothes are going to be sorted and displayed like a small shop to enable people to come and choose their own items.

It was a lovely night being able to catch up with some of our awesome Goodgym family again. And as always, many hands make light work and despite there being a lot of boxes, we soon got them all shifted.

Tonight also marked Karen's 50th task!!! Well done Karen!!

Thanks for all being so awesome and giving your time and enthusiasm so freely.

Look forward to seeing you all again soon,

Lots of love & big (virtual) hugs Nicola ❤ xx
