Well, we were there at Kids Inspire!

Welcome back to James G who hasn't been for a while. Congrats to Kirk for his sixth consecutive PB at parkrun on Saturday...will he make it 7?

Eight runners met at B&M car park and ran 3,5km to the offices of Kids Inspire.

We were met by Louise who promptly offered everyone some chocolate bars and drinks, no holding back there from the runners!

Our task was to sort out the excess of Christmas presents that didn't get to be used. Kids Inspire send out nearly 2,000 presents to Children and their families and these are the ones that didn't manage to get sent out in the short window available. These will be donated to Charity shops or saved for the next Christmas. We sorted them out into different categories, stacked them away and put the Christmas decs into another room.

Rachel found a joke book and threw a few "Knock, knock" jokes out to us for our amusement.

Job done and we headed off on the 3.5k back to B&M, led by Rich, Joel and Kirk. Rachel, Laurie and Sallyanne tail running.
