Tonight's task was to help Wexham Park Hospital with a litter pick task. We've now been helping Mike and the team at Wexham since we first starting operating in Slough and it's been a nice little give back each time to the NHS.
With my legs feeling a little sore from The Big Half race yesterday, I had already decided I could not run today. I think everyone was secretly pleased with that announcement, so we made our 2.5km route up to the hospital from our meet up point at Masaani on Shaggy Calf Lane.
En route we bumped into a lovely man from Japan who expressed an interest in joining us in the future - we hope he does!
On arrival, we could see the levels of litter had increased so we quickly got to work on collecting as much as we could. It was the usual finds - cans, crisp packets, masks, parking tickets, items of clothing!
Working in pairs or small teams we systematically made our way around the front of the hospital collecting 4 bags of rubbish.
Thank you everyone for all your help today.
Next week we will be helping St Mary's primary school in Farnham Common for a fence painting task.
