Report written by Windsor and Maidenhead runner
For our latest mission, four GoodGym volunteers rose to the challenge of helping Lavender Green Flowers in Windsor to re-home the leftover blooms from a busy weekend of weddings.
Anita, Gillian and Nicola got started on the task in the morning, and after a bit of practice our flower-arranging skills were really starting to blossom.
With three boxes of small bouquets ready to go, Anita and Gillian set off to make our first donations, to care home, hospital and library staff. Some flowers were taken into Windsor town centre and delivered to Craft Coop, while a few were given to a People2Places driver for his passengers, and some were handed to members of the public in “random acts of kindness”.
In the afternoon, Nicola and Hannah added to the bouquets made earlier, and delivered some to the therapy team at Thames Hospice. We were also able to make several buckets of bouquets for a local church, which was planning to gift them to Ukrainian families in the area.
Thanks a bunch to everyone who sent in suggestions for good causes we should donate the flowers to - we hope we made people’s Monday a little brighter.
And last bud not least, congratulations to Anita on reaching 100 good deeds. We look forward to celebrating properly with you soon!
