Tonight’s task was an exciting upcycling task!! A fellow do-gooder Tirza from Slough Anti Litter Group has been hard at work not only getting teams around Slough litter picking but also getting the town to think about recycling, costs and renewing and fixing old items.

One of her initiatives is to upcycle old clothes.

So we took this opportunity to meet with her at The Centre (thank you Everyone Active for the loan of the indoor space) to upcycle some of our running clothes.

We met at Salt hill park and after the usual task brief and warm up we headed the 1km (or maybe a tad more!) to the Farnham Rd.

Never tell a woman she can’t purse-shoe her dreams

We were glad tonight task wasn’t a Dior to Dior leaflet drop or an outdoor task where our jumpers would of got blown away - that would’ve been a cardi-gone! Being indoors on nights like these are just pure bliss!

Drum roll please

Ricky turned up.. yes you read that correctly, Ricky turned up! Was great to see him… he said wanted to get to 100 before Meera hahah!

So our upcycle was to label our T Shirts with our current good deeds numbers (or nearest number!)

Sutyee is 363 whilst I am 636! What a play on numbers

Sandy was going for gold with 184 and Ricky was forward thinking of 100!

Gauri was an even 50 whilst Meera was hitting Route 66

Jean was 91! Though she didn’t like that number

Thank you Abdulaziz for being our photographer

Great efforts all round!

Next week we will be meeting at Upton Court park for a 5k run (or shorter distance of 2km also available!) plus a litter pick.
