Today I returned back to an old haunt of GoodGym Birmingham and completed an afternoon shift at FareShare in Birmingham. It was great to meet up with Dionne who works in the warehouse but is also a GoodGym member and she wasted no time putting me to work! With my high vis and steel toe capped boots on it was time to prepare orders ready for loading on to waiting vans which would then be distributed to charities and community centres around Birmingham and beyond. It’s was amazing to see so many volunteers and in no time I was getting to grips with the job in hand which was very similar to what the GoodGym group had done previously. It was great to work hard for such a great charity and hopefully I can make the shift next week.
