A nice, festive session last night! We were helping out Beckenham Park Care Home with some decorating.
First up, some of us met at the Bridge House (and shared our fave xmas tunes), a few people met at Shortlands Station and a few made their own way to the task.
It was a pretty long run for most of us (4.5k!) but a good way to warm up on a freezing cold night.
When we arrived, we were assigned to different parts of the care home to add festive flourishes:
🎄 Decorating a tree
🌿 Adding fake greenery to the stairs
🍽 Spicing up the dinner tables
🎀 Putting up beads and ribbons around photo frames and on the dog (see pic)
It was good to do an inside task in that weather although I'm not sure most of us expected somewhere so fancy...!
We smashed through it all in half an hour and went our separate ways.
Nice one team! 💪
