Together with 19 GoodGymers who ran 5k to St Andrews Youth Club, the Broadway Project team joined them to paint the performance theatre and clear out and organise the overflowing store cupboard.
While they danced out their way to the youth club, our Broadway Run Club kicked off with a 5k to St James Park. We got underway and met the GoodGymers at 18h50 as St Andrews is just a few steps away from site.
It felt very weird to be there with none of the bright, bold and bubbly kids enjoying their evenings activities as they were on School holidays. But it allowed us more space to get working.
We split into 2 groups the painters went upstairs to get cracking with bringing the theatre some brightness for the new term while the sorters had a mountain of a task emptying, clearing and organising an overflowing store room.
With the painters off to a cracking start, with rollers rolling and brushes brushing the main parts and the fine detail of the walls were expertly taken care of with speed, efficiency and precision.
The sorters produced an epic organisational performance. Removing everything from the store cupboard, cleaning so it gleamed, sorted all the contents into like for like boxes then in perfect order up the stuff back so it was so easy to use and view. A monumental improvement in 40 minutes of action!
Thank you all so much for volunteering.
