2 runners ran to help the Notting Hill Genesis Christmas Gift & Food Appeal in Hammersmith and Fulham.
- Friday, 13th of December 2019
- Led by Beth Nelson
Gosia and John met up in Hammersmith today to help Notting Hill Genesis in sorting of gifts 🎁, donations and food items 🛒 which will be then distributed to four food banks for christmas time.
We entered a medium sized conference room with a table covered with an impressive number of bags 🛍 and boxes 📦 filled with a variety of food and other donations collected by local organisations. First part of our task was to unpack them all. As easy at it sounds with such a volume it was taking much more time (and space) that we expected.
Around half-way of unpacking, we started to categorize the products and making "themed" piles including cans 🥫, pasta 🍝, tea 🍵 & coffee ☕, cereals 🥣 and treats 🍬🍪🍭. This will help later 🙂.
Once everything was unpacked there wasn't much time left. We have managed to wrap few boxes with a decorated paper (how surprisingly-not-easy was this!) and filled them with a nice selection of goodies. There is still a lot to be done but it was a good start!
