How GoodGym Portsmouth has been going the extra mile with community missions
We had a great afternoon working on lots of different tasks at Naomi House! Nick set to work sorting donations, moved onto bag stuffing and even found time to model a bumbag (see photo). Maxine did amazing work sorting, hanging, tagging and organising the children's wear. Sarah took the challenge of pricing children's toys and made the children's toy section look wonderful. I had fun pairing shoes, arranging handbags and searching for Halloween treasures! The only thing I found which was suitable for a Halloween party was a bumble bee costume, lucky for me Sarah saw it and said ZomBee! Brilliant!
First of all a huge GoodGym welcome to Harriet who joined us for the first time, she sorted and re-packed bags like a champion, she fitted right in! Tonight Anne and Molly (the dog) from Sams Place charity shop had us sorting bags of stock, tagging unlabeled items and rebagging stock. There are some incredible treasures in that store so do go give them a visit. Rosie and Maxine tackled the many many scarfs and what we termed miscellaneous by the end of the night, which included a tea cosie disguised as a bobble hat! Enjoy the photos and we hope to see you soon!
Are you ready for a visit to a haunted house? Hopefully no ghost spotting this evening as we will be inside Wymering Manor! The team are hoping to restore one of the kitchens and would like our help to make a start on cleaning it up.
If you prefer to be outside, there are always flowerbeds to be dug over and weeds to be pulled.
Please bring a head torch
