Lending a hand on the Strand

Tue 23 Feb
Report written by Charlotte Emms

Six of us met outside Zimbabwe House on The Strand to distribute various donated items from Get Rid of and Donate to rough sleepers.

We gathered outside the van, and started taking things out. First were all the coats and shoes, which proved popular and attracted a crowd. We then had to assemble some sort of queue for bag distribution, including rucksacks and suitcases containing clothes and toiletries. This was far more difficult than it sounds!

Once we'd cracked the bag distribution queue and had everyone moving through, we brought out some sleeping bags, pillows and tents to give away, and each of us began helping people get items on request, depending on what was left over.

With all the suitcases gone from the van and the crowds dispersing, we packed up the remaining coats, shoes, and other miscellaneous items into the van. Just before dispersing, we noticed some clothes had been taken out of the donated suitcases and left on the side of the pavement. So after a quick rescue mission to gather up any unwanted items and scooping them into the van, we all said our goodbyes and headed off!

Distributing bags of essentials to rough sleepers

Tue 23 Feb 19:00 pm
Zimbabwe House, 429 Strand, London, WC2R 0JR
Along The Strand

We've spent the last couple of weeks sorting and packing bags of clothing, blankets and toiletries, most of which is stuff donated to Get Rid Of & Donate who we've done a bunch of cool things with in Lambeth.

Now is the time to distribute the bags!

The meeting spot is outside Zimbabwe House on The Strand at 7pm.

Please bring: 🤿 Mask 💦 Hand sanitiser 🧤 Gloves

And Andrea who will meet you has advised on minimising personal belongings.

Make sure you're paired up with someone and stick to the main streets. Andrea will give you a briefing when you arrive and of course don't do anything you don't feel comfortable doing.

Any questions, drop me (Mark) an email :)

An InTents Evening

Wed 17 Feb
Report written by Charlotte Emms

A group of lovely GoodGymmers volunteered to help Get Rid of and Donate prepare some bags of essentials to give out to rough sleepers.

After we arrived, we split into a few teams:

  • Team Tents ⛺️ went to figure out which donated tents were fully functioning and which weren't usable by taking them out of their bags and trying to put them up in the community hall
  • Team Toiletries 🩹 sorted some bags of toiletries, adding various bits and bobs of first aid items as we went and some additional sanitary products for women
  • Team Threads 🧤 sorted piles of donated hats, scarves, and gloves then adding these and the bags of toiletries to suitcases full of clothes, ready to hand out next week.

We'd finished packing the bags after about an hour so went to help Team Tents put the tents away before heading our separate ways for the night
