We're on the case

Coventry Report written by Laura Denham

Brrrr that was a cold one! Given the bitter temperatures, it was a great turn out with a merry band of 10 GoodGymers to help out at Clothing Coventry.

Jackie and Sharon set off for a brisk walk while the rest of us tried to warm up quickly before on starting our run. We were looking forward to get going to heat up a bit as it really was the coldest its been all winter so far.

We arrived to discover that finally, the new warehouse has materialised and the great garment migration had commenced! It's located directly opposite the old warehouse, so only a short hop over the road. The aim is to use this bigger space for storage and the smaller one as a shop to make it a more pleasant experience for the customers.

The plan was to use the electric van to transport the majority of the clothing over. We started by emptying the van of the bags and cases, which were ready to deliver to hotels, and replaced this with items from the old warehouse to take to the new. Forming a human chain we passed the bags and sacks from inside to the van with Lil getting into the back of the van to drag the bags on board. We all grabbed what we could carry and then scurried across the road over to unload at the new location.

Once we arrived at the other side and unloaded, we then made our way back to repeat the process. We managed to do this 3 times and cleared a few shelves and rails from the original warehouse. The new premises is big but wow, it is filling up quick!

The team worked so well together and it all went seamlessly, we even had time to do a speed sort of the school wear before we left. We moved such a lot of stuff in a short space of time so well done everyone!

Clothing Coventry have a mammoth task ahead of them to get those warehouses sorted so we will be assisting them as much as we can with this and will be returning at the end of the month.

*i think your hat really suits me Lil 😂
