All locked up and ready to go!

Fri 12 Mar
Report written by Alain Tallier

Today reminded me of my early days of fatherhood, struggling with baby security gates. There were multiple second hand baby security gates that had been donated. Not all of them had their parts, so I set to work trawling through the box of spare parts gathered over the years. Matching them, testing them and preparing functioning security gates to be distributed where they can help young families. One gate even went out on my watch, yay, job done!

Helping the Baby Bank

Help provide essentials to vulnerable families

The Baby Bank helps families in extreme need with everyday essentials such as nappies, wipes, school uniform and shoes, as well as larger items such as cots and buggies. They are completely volunteer run and rely on donations of new items and good quality second hand clothes, baby care equipment and furniture. During the Covid-19 crisis, demand for the Baby Bank's help has increased dramatically.

We can help by sorting through donations, preparing bundles ready for delivery and cleaning donated furniture.

Meet opposite Monello Hairdressing and please bring your head-torch with you - the storage facility has poor lighting. This task is indoors and face coverings are mandatory.

The task is listed for an hour but there may be the opportunity to stay and help for longer.

Please note your Area Activator Amy may not be present at the task and the task may need to be cancelled if we do not find an experienced GoogGym member to lead. If necessary, notice of cancellation will be sent by email no later than 9pm the night before. Please check your junk mail as well to make sure you're kept in the loop.

The toy kingdom interrupted my run!

Fri 5 Mar
Report written by Alain Tallier

Slightly nippy day for a run, so a warm shelter helping out at the Baby Bank was very welcome. Upon arrival, fellow GoodGymer, Donna Marie Esler was already hard at work helping out. I was then tasked with sorting out some boxes of toys that had been donated by a generous corporate donor. Turns out it was half a toy shops worth of brand new toys that will be making their way to some deserving children to brighten up the world with their huge smiles.

Sunny but chilly, cold but fulfilling.

Fri 12 Feb
Report written by Alain Tallier

Another cold run to the Baby Bank. Greeted by the amazing team that helps out every week. Unpacked and sorted brand new clothing donations from new-born to teenagers (boys and girls). Then continued on my merry way, had to keep moving to not become a popsicle.

Sunny day for a run and a helping hand

Fri 5 Feb
Report written by Alain Tallier

Unlike last weeks rain soaked effort, the run into town was pleasantly sunny today. Having learnt the ropes a little on previous visits, I got set to work sanitising kindly donated cots and beds. After which, I put together some toiletry hampers for some well deserving mothers. Suddenly, with time having flown so swiftly, it was off into a light drizzle for a run back home. Thanks again to the amazing team at the Baby Bank for always being so welcoming and for the great work they do.
