Trying to contain our excitement with the Safe Foundation Cardiff
6 runners ran to help the The Safe Foundation in Cardiff.
- Friday, 7th of December 2018
- Led by Mikey
Six GoodGym Cardiff runners met up on their lunch breaks to help the Safe Foundation to load a shipping container full of school supplies and furniture for it's journey to Sierra Leone. The Safe Foundation is an independent charity based in Cardiff whose aim is to help poor communities in the UK and abroad though education.Their goal is to empower people to take control of their future through development of skills, values, and attitudes. The runners arrived to an empty shipping container, a massive room filled with dozens of tables, chairs, desks, filing cabinets, and sets of drawers. We were greeted by out friendly task organiser Hannah and set to work moving the furniture outside to the container. Aimee, Ellen, Lucy, Nathan, and Mikey helped to move dozens of pieces of furniture to the container. On one trip, Aimee and Lucy wondered where Tom had ventured off to. Turns out he was recruited to the back of the shipping container to help pack all of the furniture as judiciously as possible because every foot of space counted. They must have heard about Tom's excellent tetris skills or at least observed his height and long arms. After about 2 hours, all of the furniture had been moved outside. There were a few rain showers in the process, but we were treated to an elusive triple rainbow as a reward. Hannah said that the container would arrive in Sierra Leone in about 1 month and we can't wait to see how all the supplies will be used.
