As per title and main picture... guess who's legs those are!

Besides sorting out some wall issues by those mystery legs, there were lots of jobs that were tackled by this marvelous team:

  • cleaning huge fridges
  • labeling & boxing up mice & keyboards
  • marking out parking spaces
  • setting up sanitation stations
  • counting everything in hall 3
  • more counting in hall 3 (loads to count!)
  • labeling the halls
  • fixing & decorating walls
  • assisting electricians
  • putting tables together
  • tea/coffee break
  • helping to put up (Christmas?) lights
  • swapping broken printer
  • finishing reception area flooring
  • tidying up outside of reception area

Apologies if I left any off, there was so much going on, near impossible to track everything & everyone!

A few names to highight:

We had one person come down for the first time! Welcome to the Goodgym family Dami! Newhams Helen can be looking forward to her black t-shirt after completing her 50th task! That banana cake looked delicious and was well earned. And Natalie will be floating home carried by her newly acquired wings - 100 tasks for this Greenwich regular.

Thanks to Nick & Sharon for taking pictures and big thank you from Richard and the Crisis team for all the work done!

There are a couple of sessions up for next week, shifting from evenings to day time on Wednesday & Thursday. Like the Saturdays, these are logged as 10-4, but you can come later and/or finish earlier - very much flexible volunteering! So if you need an excuse to escape the house for a little while, why not pop round and help out for a while?
