What a lovely evening for a jog πŸƒ up to the St Christopher's Hospice charity shop in Crystal Palace! After the washout that was last week's session, we were set for sorting clothes πŸ‘š indoors on what was probably the last warm day of the year πŸ˜‚

The team departed Bridge House and we started with a quick warm up in Crystal Palace park, before heading along the main path to the Sports Centre ⚽ and out by Crystal Palace station πŸš‰ to quickly get us towards our destination. We tackled the tough incline up Anerley Hill ⛰️ and crossed over the Triangle, arriving at the shop at 7:20 - nice and early to get started on our task.

Teresa welcome us with a big task - moving all the clothes of summer bags out of the main storage area and swapping them with the winter bags πŸ›οΈ. She said she once had to do this on her own and it took forever, but our GoodGym squad meant it got done in no time at all this evening ⏲️

We also got on with some regular tasks in the front of the shop. Alex was on vacuum duty, and Hannah found all the stock that needed to rotate to another shop to try and find a new home.

Once the seasonal bags had all been moved, the rest of the team got on with bagging up the clothes Hannah had found, with Fiona racking the hangers back up efficiently. It was at this time that we found the crab bell. Why a bell in the shape of a crab? Who knows! πŸ¦€

Teresa with over the moon at how tidy the shop looked, and we were ready to head back down the hill, but not before a quick photo with some of the fun clothes we'd found!

Great work everyone!
