Our last goodgym group task of the year, and one of our favourites too. Illness did get to some of the group, so they had to stay home, but the rest still arrived eager and ready to go.

The task to wrap as many presents as possible, the gifts had been donated for the children staying at Nightingale House, who provide emergency, temporary accommodation for homeless families.

So this task was very special indeed. We had a festive run (Santa hats an all) to the back of the building, where we were let into the back gate. We quickly scurried into the out buildings where all of the presents were hidden. No time to waste, we split into teams and got to work.

As this was super special, we decided to stay a little longer to wrap as many presents as possible. The rest would have to be completed by the night workers later on that evening.

A quick goodbye, as thanks from the staff at the house. And now to get ready for Christmas.
