On a Monday night, after work five GoodGymers arrived at GROAD's unofficial HQ, St Faith's Community Centre to sort out and pack bags for the rough sleepers. Every last Tuesday of the month (apart from December), Andrea brings the GROAD van to the Strand to hand out these packed bags.

The team including newbie, Katie managed to pack 26 bags as well as sort out big bags of sleeping bags, shoes and blankets.

They even packed the van and filled it with the toys going to the local schools.

All in all, great power hour of doing good - welcome again, Katie!
