'Twas the last task before Christmas, and all through the Hall
We were wrapping and packing, and having a ball.
The chocolates were wrapped in the kitchen with care,
GoodGymers freezing their (finger)tips off in there.

Worker elves packing up hundreds of gifts,
Hats, socks and toiletries, prepared on our shift.
While out in the cold a hardy quartet,
Delivered fundraising leaflets to the roads near Taste Tibet.

We sprang to our tasks, feeling Christmassy cheer,
Just leave it to GoodGym we'll complete it; no fear!
Then we called out as we walked out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"

Great work on our last group task of 2022 everyone - so good to finish delivering the leaflets for The Porch winter fundraiser and also to prepare so many of the Christmas gifts which will be delivered with The Oxford Mutual Aid Christmas week food parcels.

Congratulations to Joe and Laura for reaching the 10 Good Deed milestone, and a massive round of applause for Henry who reached 50 Good Deeds last night after only joining GoodGym 42 weeks ago!

Welcome Lucy - good to meet you!
