Say “Pants” to poverty and help spread the word

Well I had a fun Saturday afternoon surrounded by 1211 items of underwear! With the help of Angie and Holly we soon had them sorted into 3 lots (women, boys, girls) then we sorted them further into ages and sizes. No sooner than we’d finished though and I had a text from Bettsie saying another 132 items were on their way to me, was going to push my luck and ask him to sort for me but reckon I know what he’d say…

Was out of the office at the end of last week so am a bit nervous about what I’m going into tomorrow. I owe Mr McIntyre a fish and chips lunch as he’s been a “pant mule” bringing the donations through from Glasgow, he emailed me to say he had “2 big bags full of pants”, he’d taken a holdall through but he couldn’t get them all in.

Was on a course Thursday and Friday, I knew most of the people there but there were some people I had never met before. Unfortunately, Mr Halley as we were standing getting registered and introduced, made the comment ” before we leave tomorrow mind me to give you your pants, they’re in the car”.

Will post an update over the next few days.
