“Yeah! Bag packing! You can get a fortune bag packing!”…. That’s what we were told by some of our colleagues who had been fundraising on previous Habitat for Humanity trips. However, getting a bag packing gig was easier said than done. After many, many knock-backs (at least we got a reply – some stores completely ignored us!) we finally got two dates for bag packing at Hermiston Gait’s Tesco store. Our two bag packing mornings have netted us £630 and a new respect for the other charities packing bags at supermarkets.
Another £327 in to the kitty thanks to our generous colleagues.
