Community mission

Tuesday challenge: Come and deliver home cooked food for St Hilda's...

St Hilda's lunchtime activity returns for September!

Description

Background

Lindsey from St Hilda's was in touch last week to explain the following, “As things have slowly been returning to the new normal for many of us, there are still some members of the community struggling, so we try to make it a little easier for them by delivering a lunch to them.

This may be a lovely vegetarian wrap or a pretty rainbow salad (we always send a little treat for them, too, because lunch isn't lunch without a treat)."

What GoodGymers say about this flexible summer lunchtime activity

  • "As usual, food parcels were already packed, grouped and labelled at Sonali Gardens centre where I was greeted/welcomed with big smile!", writes a regular of this Community Mission, Ceiling.

  • "I had such a nice long chat to an appreciative resident!", wrote a nicely-surprised Alex.

What’s involved:

• We are looking for up to 7 GoodGymers to meet at the pick up point (St Hilda's East Community Centre ,18 Club Row London E2 7EY ) at anytime between 11.00 and 12.30 and each grab 2-4 parcels each (whatever you can manage).

• The parcels will be packed in a bag, with individual delivery addresses. These will be grouped into 2-3 bags with addresses closest to one another, all in neighbouring area.

On arrival at the Community Mission:

• When you arrive, please let them know you're from GoodGym and here to deliver parcels for Lindsey.

• The mission ideally involves carrying 2-4 bags to a destination within the E2 & E3 area. You can run, walk or cycle - do consider bringing a backpack if you're cycling.
