14 amazing GoodGymers run, walked, rode their way to Charing Cross to help the amazing GROAD charity give out a Van load of supplies to Westminster's homeless community.

Great to have such a good group out in force to help with the evenings efforts. A new system which helped massively with ensuring only exactly what was wanted went to each individual so allowed many more people to be helped with vital clothing and sanitary supply's.

We had a railing long pop up show room which everyone go to have a look and choose what fitted and met their needs. Great interactions and help to find and get all of what was needed.

On the Van we gave out 60 sleeping bags, 40 pairs of shoes, 50 big bags, 5 folding chairs, 3 tents and 1 radio! Sone great sorting at the back and awesome skills at the to help as many people as possible with a finite amount of donations!

An hour gone in a flash and a huge impact on Westminster's homeless community!

Thanks for everyone for coming!

See you at another session very soon!
