50 huge good deeds for the fabulous Alanna!
The fabulous That's A Wrap charity collects donations of toys every year to give them to children who wouldn't otherwise receive presents at Christmas, and we couldn't be happier to help them spread the word and appeal for more donations!
It was a pretty chilly night in Hounslow, so we did a quick warm up and after a quick discussion where we discovered I didn't know how to pronounce some basic street names (thanks for not laughing tooo much), set off for a route whch aimed to cover as many houses as humanely possible. It was a great effort from everybody, and we soon were getting through the leaflets like we were on fire (except, strangely, for Alan's, whose pile seemed to keep multiplying).
After managing to get through all two packs - a brilliant 500 leaflets! - we set off to the green to do an intense pyramid speed session which really tested our endurance and speed and blew the cobwebs away. Absolutely brilliant running and super form everyone.
See you next week when we will be writing tags which will be attached to the donated presents. You can sign up here for some festive fun!
And an extra cheer for Alanna on her 50 good deeds - hip hip hooray!
Did you know that 41% of all children are living in poverty in our local area alone? That's A Wrap charity wants to make sure every child in Hounslow who wouldn't otherwise get a present receives one this Christmas. Every donation they receive finds a loving home with a local child that would otherwise go without this winter.
Toys are distributed locally in mid December to children experiencing poverty or disadvantage - but they need help spreading the word to local people to get donations. We'll be delivering leaflets in the area to help make this happen!
