Like last year, the 'Chunks2Hunks' crew from Bancroft Rugby Club has been busy spreading the word to collect toys for the little kids of mums looked after by the wonderful Magpie Project.

All those donated presents ofcourse need checking & wrapping - which is where Goodgym comes in! 6 of the Redbridge crew braved the early morning cold & drizzle and joined Dan & his team to work through the pile of toys & books, wrap and label them for the age range.

In total the whole team sorted/wrapped/packed:

  • 180 presents for the Magpie kids
  • 50odd books for teenagers
  • 60odd presents went to Essex Family Services
  • a bag full of babygrows sent out
  • cot checked and sorted for pick-up

And beyond all that, a couple of bags of assorted donated clothing got sorted and split in size ranges.

Lots of praise and thanks from the organisers to all that came down to help out!
