Tonight, there were ten of us for Tenovus.........

Meeting back at Sport Wales once again in Sophia gardens, it was a slightly drizzly start to our evening, we all chatted whilst waiting for everyone to arrive and then made our way into the dark night.

Thankfully the rain stopped as we started, at last a dry Tuesday run. We made our way through the City Centre and already you could begin to see the set up for the Winter markets, we talked about our bowling night this coming Friday and other socials that we could set up.

  • Fireworks
  • Ice Skating in the Castle grounds
  • Our yearly Xmas Party (fingers crossed)

Keep your eyes peeled for them on the website!

We suddenly found ourselves at a very strange set of lights, with the green crossing light somehow turned around to face the cars so we could no longer see when it was green. We managed to safely cross the road and got to the Tenovus shop dead on time to start our tasks for the evening.

Carl met us, as usual with a smile.......I say as usual, this is the first return since pre-pandemic, so it was wonderful to finally be back again. We said our 'Hi hi's' and it was time to get to work, splitting into teams and off we went.

  • Pricing and sorting the DVD's
  • Tagging, sizing and hanging donated clothes
  • Steaming clothes in the hanging area
  • Pricing puzzles
  • Dressing three mannequins

Andrew, Jamie and Martin went to work on the media.

Estelle, Hannah and Lydia hit the pile of clothes after a quick demonstration of the taggers and steamer.

Michelle and Sean made their way to puzzle corner and with puzzled looks began counting a 1000 piece jigsaw (unfortunately there were 3 pieces missing).

This left Su with her favourite job of the mannequin dressing.

30 minutes went by in the blink of an eye, in this time lots of clothes were steamed and ready to be priced in the morning. The DVD's had been completed and Martin was now helping Su with the remaining mannequin, after lots of arguments the puzzle had been counted and found to be missing pieces but we had managed a couple of smaller puzzles. A quick photo in the Halloween window and it was time to head back.`
