Weed go potty with these roots!
5 runners ran to help the Kingston Welcare in Kingston upon Thames.
- Wednesday, 26th of August 2020
- Led by Kate MacPherson
Four of us came out this evening to support the charity Kingston Welcare. Welcome to Simona and Aziza on your first Goodgym community mission and thanks to Cathy for joining us from Richmond.
According to their website, Kingston WelCare is a charitable organisation for local families to meet, connect and support each other. Families from all backgrounds are welcomed to WelCare. They have a longstanding presence in the local community and provide long-term support for families.
Marjorie greeted us and tasked us with making the charity’s front entrance look more inviting. Aziza and I started with tackling a stubborn root and pulling it from its pot while Cathy and Simona potted some lovely purple and white flowers for the window ledges to replace the dead ones.
Once the front was freed of weeds and swept clear, we moved along to pull the weeds down the side of the building. It wasn’t long before our list of jobs was completed and we were ready to step back and admire the transformation! Mission accomplished! We look forward to returning soon to help with the planting in the back garden including the living willow.
