Santa's Sort-y List
6 GoodGymers made their way to help the Living Well in Bromley.
- Saturday, 11th of December 2021
- Led by Mark Gilyead
Today's task was to help out Living Well and their food bank with checking and packing "Christmas Bags" - a more festive version of their regular packages they give to those that need them.
Members of the public were asked to provide specific things (salmon, shower gel, coffee, festive biscuits, tinned fruit...etc.) and we were there to check that everything was there.
Firstly we shifted all the bags into the church, before getting on with going through each bag and matching them with the list of food. If there was something missing, we'd grab it from the usual food bank stock, and then we'd top the bags up with mince pies and other Christmas treats!
Once they were all filled, we moved the bags back into the containers outside. A good test of brain power, speed and muscle! 🧠🏃💪
Mary from Living Well sent me this after the session:
"A big thank you to everyone who helped today with Christmas bags. If we had to do them without your help it would have taken many hours."
Great work guys! And big shout out to Carla who came along for her first GG task - A baptism of fire with a speedy session! 🎉🔥
