Fantastic turn out for our visit to Carriers of Hope this evening, love it!

We welcomed Anna, Anirudh, Nidhi for their first session and good to see you back for more Stuart :) Also hats off to Sharon and Steve for joining us on their anniversary!

There was a lot to be done tonight, and with only a few volunteers these tasks would seem daunting. However, with 16 of us contributing and working together seamlessly we once again demonstrated that teamwork makes the dreamwork.

Anna, Anirudh, Nidhi, Sharon, Georgia and Steve ascended to the baby item haven, curating adorable baby care packages. Maddie and Beverley took charge at the toiletry station skillfully packaging delightful smellies and bathroom must-haves all set to bring a touch of comfort to those who need them. Natasha and Stuart showcased their masterful bagging skills, filling the trolly's with bags of toilet rolls. Meanwhile Laura James, Tom, Dale and Chloe engaged in the meticulous task of organising tin cans, flexing their mental muscles as they counted stock and ensured items were within the expiry date. Simultaneously, they efficiently transported items to the toiletry station as needed.

During our volunteering marathon we paused for a delightful break savouring jam on toast tea and biscuits which sweetened the experience.

Amazing work everyone you have all done such a fantastic job of helping to get the warehouse in order and making the regular volunteers daily work easier by preparing all these packages.

Next week we will be leafleting for Myton followed by a curry to celebrate GG Cov turning 5. If you haven't signed up please do so by Wednesday 6th March so I can book a table.
