Movers and dust shakers

2 runners ran to help an isolated older person in Bournemouth.

  • Sarah
  • Hannah
Saturday, 18th of September 2021

Mrs L is downsizing so needed a hand sorting through lots of belongings which were piled high in 2 separate spaces.

Turns out that myself and Sarah were the IDEAL team to take on this challenge... Sarah admitted she was occasionally one to hold on to things and I am pretty brutal when it comes to sorting and clearing out so it was a great combination!

First we made a plan which was to get some piles going - one for tip, one for charity, and one for valuables /collectables which needed someone with a trained eye to decide their fate! After clearing enough space to create some piles, we got going.

It didn't take us long to start seeing progress and I realised I was in my absolute element, I love a good sort out!

Mrs L was really grateful for our help and surprised by what we managed to get done in the time. Hopefully we will be back to finish what we started in the next few weeks. A dusty but satisfying start to our Saturday for sure๐Ÿ‘
