Kingston upon Thames

Community mission

Calling to deliver Medications and Prescriptions

Elderly & isolated people will be able to access essential medications

Description

This is a community mission, a community led session where you will meet other GoodGym members at the task. Please make yourself known to anyone in a GoodGym top when you arrive. As with all GoodGym sessions we encourage you to use the power of your legs to get there, i.e. run or walk if you can.

Kingston Council are in need of volunteers now more than ever. The outbreak has seen an increase in the need for volunteers to deliver medications and prescriptions to the isolated and elderly. This prescription courier role is in support of work done by the Kingston Council and will be as and when required Monday to Friday daytime and weekends on call if an urgent request comes in. These could likely be called for at short notice.

THIS LISTING IS TO REGISTER ALL SLOTS BETWEEN MONDAY 6TH - SUNDAY 12TH APRIL

How to take part in this community mission:

Step 1: Compete your GoodGym Covid-19 training.

Step 2: Sign up to a volunteer slot with RBK - Kingston Stronger Together by contacting Kingston Goodgym Task Force member Martel. You could do this by leaving a comment below to express your interest for a slot.

Step 3: Complete your delivery slot for RBK and be sure to follow all safety guidelines outlined below.

Step 4: On Sunday 12th April, you'll receive an email from GoodGym asking you to log your attendance and receive a good deed. Advice to people going to GoodGym community missions:

Current Government guidelines mean that leaving home is only possible for specific reasons. For our work; supporting vulnerable people and essential work are still allowed, this task is in line with our training and goals during Coronavirus.

Do not use public transport to attend, please only sign up if you are local and able to get there by other means such as part of your daily exercise. Do not attend a GoodGym group session if you are feeling unwell or anyone in your household is self isolating with symptoms. Wash your hands with soap before leaving to attend the session. Wash your hands with soap when arriving at the task location for community missions. Bring tissues with you to all sessions. If you need to cough or sneeze do so into a tissue and throw the tissue immediately into a bin. If you do not have a tissue cough or sneeze into your elbow. Do not use your hands.

Hi all GG this mission will run throughout this isolation period and whilst residents are in need of support, I do not know how many requests we will have for support as you may imagine this will evolve. Having a bank of people to call upon will help Kingston council fulfil these requests so thanks for your support

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!
