Amanda has just done something they've never done before. Amanda has just run a mission; they've changed their running route and run to help someone who really needed their help.
After work today, I got on my bicycle and headed towards the food hub (lovely people!) to pick up a bag for Mr. U who's isolating due to a positive COVID-19 test. The buzzer to his building was out of function, but luckily two beautiful souls (also on bikes and wearing Hi Viz vests!) let me and my loaded bicycle into the building (thank you!) so that I could safely hand over the food to Mr. U. A total of 7km covered today through rain and wind - a great ending to this Wednesday!
The weather was pretty grim today but Mrs A lit up my day at my first mission! We had some nice chats and laughs before I headed out in the rain on my bicycle to get her some biscuits and other bits. Today was the day I realised I have some learning to do when it comes to British biscuit culture...there are simply so many different kinds! But after visiting two different shops I (almost) managed to fulfil Mrs A's wishes.
Anyone knows where one can find Murray Mints? If you do, please give me a shout!
Congratulations to Amanda who is now Mission Verified. They're now ready to start running GoodGym missions to help older people and running alone to community mission. Give Amanda a cheer to kickstart their mission running career.
Ananda and Jen smashing an epic pre Christmas food delivery for an isolating family in need!!
A super strong team needed for this one!! With a family of 5 isolating and in need of food for Christmas Amanda and Jen were superstars in getting them sorted for Christmas supplies!
With an extra load itbwas all hands on deck! bag, bikes were fully loaded for the 3k walk from food hub to family!
Please note that this community mission has been cancelled.
We're very sorry to have to cancel this Community Mission but the trees haven't arrived.
Please do check back in for the new listing of this CM when those pesky apple trees finally turn up.
Amanda just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Amanda a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.
An amazing new partnership with the Shoreditch Trust!!
We pick up parcels from the Waterhouse Restaurant at 11:20 and route will take around an hour to deliver about 10 parcels. Ruck sacks and panniers would be helpful!
We will be delivering food parcels to members of our community who are seriously ill, recovering from a stroke or usually rely on carers family or friends because they are unable to prepare food themselves. cannot safely visit a food bank because of mobility problems, risks to their health or risks to someone they provide care for. are without friends and family to drop off shopping. are homeless, and living in temporary accommodation with no kitchens, or shared facilities which are unsafe for them to use.
We really need your help to make these deliveries so be great to have you along!! Best ways to get about on the delivery routes will be walking or bikes! Might get a bit messy running!! We will get routes the day before and will pair you up with another GoodGymer or 2.
If you would like to be in pair group with someone in particular let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we have pairs sorted I will open up listing to allow groups of 3. If you would prefer to do delivery solo just let me know.
Any problems on the day message me (Joel) on 07895628708.
