6 GoodGymers enjoyed a short jog to the CC warehouse to help sort out stock ready for the arrival of their new rails which are being fitted this month. Deb joined us there and the task owners were ready for us with trollies which needed to be filled with donations from another storage facility. We all trundled over to the unit and filled the trollies with as many items of clothing and boxes as possible and wheeled them back over to the main warehouse. Creating our signature human train, we unloaded the trollies, stacking the boxes and decanting the items of clothing into big bags.

As the warehouse is very short on space we split into groups to help with different tasks including, filling the task owners car with boxes ready to distribute tomorrow, Sorting coats and kids clothes, sorting shoes into sizes, hanging children clothes onto hangers. We managed to get quite a bit done and it will be nice to see the changes and assist them further with getting the warehouse as organised as possible when we return in a couple of weeks.

To finish it off we took a team photo and set off on our short run back to CBGB. Great work tonight everyone, I know its is very much appreciated by Clothing Coventry and a big welcome to Lani Dines on her first group run.

It's really dark on our runs now so please remember your head torches and reflective gear next week if you have any!
