8 Goodgymmers paint the interior of The Regather space upstairs. Fun, laughter and various quotes were shared amongst us all. Lots of high walls were unreachable even with ladders and chairs. I did think of climbing up to paint but too risky. So we have to leave the high unpainted walls for another day to abseil if permitted. Paint looked yellow against the cream walls but when dried it looks white. We were all curious with the various shades of White but we did it successfully. Well done team!

Natalie and Rachel both donned our running shoes to get a shift on to Mr M and get shifting his furniture.
The job was a simple one - swap over a sofa and 2 armchairs to allow him a more comfortable view of the TV. A little planning was required of how to manoeuvre things, but all went smoothly and done and dusted before our heart rates even managed to settle before our runs back home!

Myself and Natalie both volunteered as hosts at Foodcycle this month (although on separate days).
They provide a free weekly meal and company to all who wish to attend, all made from waste food.
We took on the role of hosting - welcoming serving drinks and food and washing up at the end. It's enjoyable and you get a free dinner for your effort! (we even got big sharing bags of crisps to take home this week)
Join us next time - we'll plan to go again in a couple of months. Full disclosure, I forgot to take any photos, so used one from last time we went!

Natalie and Rachel joined other volunteers at Foodcycle Sheffield to serve meals to guests. It is open to all, helping to address food poverty, food waste and loneliness.
Natalie is an old hand, but it was my first time. We signed up to 'host', which involves making drinks, serving food, washing up and generally making guests feel welcome. Best of all, you get fed too!
If you are interested in volunteering, check out the website. There's a few videos to watch and then you can find cooking and hosting opportunities in your local area. Sheffield has a Wednesday lunchtime meal in Broomhall and Tuesday evening meal in Parson's Cross.
