Community mission

Big Red Box Food Collection at Sainsbury's Charlton

Help tackle food poverty


This is a community mission, a community led session where you will meet other GoodGym runners at the task. Please make yourself known to anyone in a GoodGym top when you arrive.

Alongside government social distancing and hygiene rules, you must:

  • Bring your own gloves suitable for the task
  • Not share tools at the task or clean tools between each use

BIG RED BOX is a King's Church London Christmas initiative supporting those in the local community who might otherwise go without during the festive period by collecting food and distributing Christmas hampers through partner organisations.

You will be either handing out flyers as people enter the store or collecting food from customers as they leave. There are three slots - 11am-1pm, 1pm-3pm, 3pm-5pm. Please email Alice.tibbert@kingschurchlondon.org to register your interest for this community mission and to specify which slot you would like to attend. They need at least two people for each slot.

When handing out flyers we often say something like: "Would you like to add an item from the list to your shop to help a family in need this Christmas" OR "Help a family in need this Christmas" and then let flyer speak for itself.

Please meet us in the entrance area 5 minutes before your slot is due to begin so you can collect your t-shirt and have a quick briefing.

Date and time

11:00 - 17:00 Sunday, 17th of November 2019

New to GoodGym?

This is a GoodGym group run, where we run to help a local community organisation and then run back.

New runners are welcome to GoodGym group runs - no one gets left behind. You're unlikely to be alone, hundreds of new people sign up every week.

There's a place to leave bags and a toilet at the start point, all you need to do is bring your trainers. It's free to try - get involved!
