New day, new Crisis tasks.

A staggered arrival of a large GoodGym group meant Richard and the warehouse team got some splendid skill sets spread out over the course of this Saturday.

Situated over this 13,000sqm site in Leven Road in Poplar, runners were dispatched to all four corners, inside and out, for a variety of tasks, including:

  • Cleaning, clearing the outdoor area.

  • Preparing boxes and BOXES of leaflets.

  • Stacking boxes and pallets of equipment and provisions.

  • Moving fire extinguishers.

  • Putting together the call centre.

  • Labelling mice (the tech variety) and keyboards.

It was the usual hive of activity, with GoodGymers safely-but-sociably taking great delight in being able to join this fantastic Christmas operation.

Shout-outs to the whole team

...but especially to Isla, Khushru, Abi, Katie and Jay, whose first GoodGym event it was. Hope to see you again!

And thanks for our photographers too: John, Peter, Tracey, Nick and Becs.

Until next time...
