Our Tuesday Group Run task was back at Balance Support to help finish off the painting. They had the paint and willing volunteers from their office but there's nothing like a little GoodGym action to speed up the task in hand. We met with Fran and Lila and they showed us where a second coat of paint was needed - we grabbed rollers and brushes and got to work.

In the middle room, Claire, Petra and Jade worked as a team to do the cutting in round the window. Dave hopped on the ladder and did the cutting in at the top of the walls and Rachel rollered in between.

In the furthest room, Catherine and Laurel started the second coat of cutting in and rollering - a dream team! Pierre and Janet helped to build two office chairs and helped with all the other extra little jobs that are necessary in such a big project like this.

It was lovely to meet up again and the hour flew by. The walls looked amazing and a quick glance in the kitchen where the walls were the original mucky magnolia colour showed us how much had been done in a short amount of time. Great task and a brilliant turn out by GoodGym - thank you to everyone who helped out on such a frosty evening.
