Bean helping out

Thu 14 Jan
Report written by Aimee Bambridge

We were back at the East End Women foodbank for our weekly essential mission. Charlotte and Neil (well done to Neil on his first community mission!) started packing the driver’s cars while I helped unpack foods donated from supermarkets on to the shelves.

Once most of delivery drivers had picked up their food parcels Charlotte and Neil helped me put food tins in the correct places. Once the main shelves were rammed with tins, we organised the storeroom so the many tins of beans and soup were all nicely packed together. We all helped packing the car of the last driver.

Just when we thought we were finishing off, a surprise delivery turned up which had been rerouted due to the snow. We unloaded loads of fresh fruit and veg, cheese, milk and sausages. I unfortunately had to rush off back to work but Charlotte and Neil managed to stay, and help make sure the delivery was all out in the correct places. Well done everyone!

As always a fantastic way to spend a long lunch break!

Weekly task with East End Women food bank

Thu 14 Jan 11:00 am
Building Futures East, Low Yard, White St, Newcastle, NE6 3PJ
Help a brilliant charity doing amazing things!

East End Women is a Community Programme that helps Women in the North East to achieve their potential.

Each week they deliver over 1 TONNE of food to local people in Walker which is amazing! This is equivalent to 2520 meals.

Thursday is their large delivery day and they would absolutely love our help, with a variety of tasks including lifting, bagging up and general organisation. This is currently completed by one person which is a lot of hard work, and they would really appreciate some extra hands.

Aimee Bambridge has completed their first weekend mission. Sat 19 Dec 2020

Aimee has forgone the usual weekend routine. Instead of lie-ins, roasts and strolls around the park Aimee has dropped everything to run a GoodGym mission for someone who needed help. Respect

Holidays Are Coming

Sat 19 Dec
Report written by Aimee Bambridge

Mr R was very happy to have help with his shopping, he had never heard of GoodGym before but thought it was a wonderful idea.

He wanted 48 cans of coke zero to keep him stocked up over Christmas and a few food items. Quite the workout! Luckily, I found the lift, as when I first went to up pick up his shopping list I climbed the many flights of stairs and instantly regretted it!

Three sweeping brushes, two coat hangers and a frozen-on pigeon poo

Wed 16 Dec
Report written by Anji Andrews

Never a dull moment at our visit to Recyke Y Bike tonight!

Lets start with a massive cheer for Aimee on a double community mission day after leading the Wednesday Bonus foodbank mission today! Kudos! Aimee took on the painting task solo tonight, glossing like a boss.

Charlotte and Sam did a fabulous job of sweeping, I hung up donations of cycling jerseys while Tom happily took the short straw of mopping frozen-on pigeon poo off the workshop floor. We all took turns at the bonus task of patting resident dog Scout who is always in need of attention.

We can't wait to be back in the new year for more dogs, bikes and good things.

Three Packers Packing

Wed 16 Dec
Report written by Aimee Bambridge

Three GoodGymers helped East End Women foodbank in our weekly Wednesday mission.

As usual we were packing cars with food parcels to be delivered to people in need. We made sure that every delivery driver arriving to collect the food parcels had the right number of bags of food, toiletries and any extras like baby food or pet food. Once we counted out the correct number bags, we helped quickly load their cars. We struggled to find a ‘no hob’ bag but Tom managed to make one up even finding some tinned meat but no pot noodles.

In a quiet period waiting for the last driver to arrive we caught up and had a chat about all our plans covid-19 had affected. We didn’t use any wheelbarrows this week, but Liz did look to be having fun pushing a red cube on wheels around. The hour flew by!

We Pushed The Envelope On This One!

Sat 12 Dec
Report written by Aimee Bambridge

We returned to the Comfrey Project for the second time this week. The tasks this morning involved preparing envelopes to go out to the service users with vouchers for a local shop to wish them a merry Christmas and allow them to pick their own items.

I started off by addressing envelopes to the users writing Merry Christmas and drawing little stars, my favourite bit was definitely getting to use the comfrey project stamp at the end. Sam got the job of numbering all 300 vouchers. Tom was tasked with distributing the leaflet we put together on Tuesday night into all the parcels to go out. Once me and Tom had finished our tasks, we helped move some boxes into the shed.

Once Sam had finished numbering all the vouchers, we started the task of put them in the correct envelope and recording which voucher numbers each person was getting. This is so they can remind anyone who hasn’t used them to use them. We were very speedy, with me and Tom packing the envelopes and Sam updating the spreadsheet; we got in a rhythm and were done in no time!

Special well done and Happy Birthday to Tom who is so dedicated to come to volunteer with GoodGym on his birthday! (This may or maybe not because of the lack of anything else to do in tier 3)
