Here's what Ms D of SE5 had to say about the mission:

Lovely feedback from the referrer: "Thank you Lenka. I'm delighted Ms. D. had somebody so conscientious to help her!"

Ms D of SE5, mission beneficiary

This is perhaps one of the most fulfilling mission that I have done yet.

Ms D is a sweet lovely woman, has a tough history and is struggling by not feeling supported. She is a single mother with two sons, one is autistic and the other only eats certain brands of food. So she is finding it hard to find the brands especially now that she has to self isolate.

GoodGym have been fantastic and have paid for this shop to help her out.

They sent me the detailed list of branded food plus some basic essentials and instructed me to get as much as I can and to drop it off safely.

It was such a specific list and quite a lot I took the decision to go by car and drive to the closest big supermarket which is Tesco's. I got everything except eggs which I managed to get from a small fruit and veg shop.

I delivered the goods, rang Ms D to come pick up her shopping and she arrived to express so much gratitude, it truly warmed my heart.

I wish her and her two sons all the best. Thank you GoodGym for showing your kindness and true colours yet again.❤️
