I got in contact with P through my local Next Door site. He is severely disabled and deaf and self-isolating at the moment. Last year someone came to do some paid gardening work for him and removed loads of plants from his back garden, which he didn't want removed and placed them together with what felt like a tonne of soil into his green re=cycling bin. The result of this was that the council couldn't move the bin and therefore couldn't take it away.

Good Gym to the rescue!!! On a freezing Friday morning I was able to gradually decant the contents of the bin into black plastic bin liners and as an added bonus was able to sweep up the leaves in P's front patio area and place them in the now empty bin. It only took me about half an hour to do the whole job but he was so pleased as this has been something that has been worrying him for quite a while now. And of course the best thing is that we do it for nothing. P hadn't heard of Good Gym but was so impressed that he said he would make a donation.
