A warm welcome on a chilly evening to Jane who joined us for her first GoodGym run.

Another chilly evening had us heading north to help out at the Naomi House charity shop. There were so many of us that we were split into 2 groups: one group upstairs and one group downstairs.

We set to work sorting items, hanging them and sizing them.

Downstairs it was all handbags, while upstairs seemed to be gladrags. Vicki and Jo acted as gatekeepers of the clothing rail for the upstairs team - making sure everything was quality controlled.

After a very productive evening we headed back down to the community centre where we split into teams once again for a running relay.

Once all batons (or cones in this case) had been passed we headed in to enjoy some tasty cookies from Maxine and chocolates from Toni! Happy birthday to Maxine and Pippa who both celebrate being another year older between now and the next group run!

Another great Wednesday:SORTED.
