8 GoodGymers helped Exeter Homeless Partnership paint their new "Giving Hub" today! Fantastic work and so great to help out such an important project!

Exeter Homeless Partnership is creating a "Giving Hub" in Princesshay, a place where you can donate your old winter items, learn about EHP, and just join the conversation about homelessness. A times like these this could not be more important and we were delighted to give them a hand, painting the hub and getting it ready for opening.

We worked in two staggered groups so that we could maintain social distancing at all times. It was fab to have Pete back from his long stay in Spain and just so nice to all get stuck in together, working hard and chatting lots (in a slightly muffled way through our masks).

In 3 hours we got lots done! Amazing work team! On Wednesday we'll go back to give the hub a final coat and it will be brilliant to see the work complete! Sign up here to join on Wednseday. Also remember that you can donate winter coats, warm jumpers, sleeping bags etc to EHP.
