Moving fridges, we're getting a freezer!

Hello!

We've just got a brilliant donation for a well needed fridge AND a freezer, both of them small undercounter type.
But we need to pick them up! Anyone available to help with transport and/or a set of hands to help lifting them?

You will be rewarded in burritos and general Forest love :)
