Beacon 6th March 2012

Another change to the routine this week, joing with the Rotary Club of Yarraville at DiK to help with the loading of a junk container and sorting of equipment for shipping overseas. 

Laurie Fisher was gobsmacked by the way in which both clubs banded together to get on with the task of filling the rubbish skip.   There were broken desks, pallets, bent wheelchairs old medical equipment damaged books, broken boxes and anything else that you could envisage enough to fill one of the biggest waste skips that could be delivered.

This was achieved in little over an hour of hard graft from the Gellibabies and Yarravillians whilst the ladies sorted bedding and medical fabrics before sitting down to a feast of roast chicken, spuds and salad.

A job well done which not only cleared up the site but provided adequate resources that saved more than two weeks of Laurie’s regular volunteers’ time.  Sso sorry for those Gellibabies that missed out but we only talked about you for a couple of hours and then went home!!  (We didn’t Really but Eh!!)
