A team of 4 (Simon, Abi and John and Jackie Shirley) attended our weekly deep clean at The Arc Centre community hub. It's a lovely task, hosted by volunteer coordinator Damien, where we set up a main hall and kitchen space, and get it ready to receive food deliveries for local families.

Three of our crew have contributed to this task before, so we knew how to get cracking! Firstly, we shifted all of the donated produce (loads of new items!) out of the two rooms to leave us enough space to clean up. Abi and Simon swept the floors, whilst John and Jackie mopped, and we all attacked the kitchen area with surface cleaner to ensure peak hygiene standards.

A very satisfying task, always great to work efficiently towards a well accomplished outcome.
