Sock 'n' Roll!

2 runners ran to help an isolated older person in Hammersmith and Fulham.

Never have I ever managed to get from A to B without taking the 'scenic (lost) route'. However, after running an extra 2k than intended, I arrived at our destination and met the lovely Eva for the first time to get cracking on my first ever GG mission!

Mrs N is making a return home after being discharged from hospital and needed a sofa removing from her living room. We were welcomed into her home by her husband and introduced to our sofa opponent.

This particular sofa had a few tricks up its sleeves/between its cushions. After we fished for letters, change and socks we began our workout. We made an excellent team and cleared the doorway in a jiffy! However, this sofa needed to lose a few pounds if it had any chance of fitting in the lift. Luckily, a neighbour of Mr and Mrs N pointed out that the lift on the opposite side of the corridor was larger. So we squished our way out of lift one, into lift two and completed the task with ease!

Mrs N can now return home from hospital with one less thing to worry about. Happy Monday people!
