Stacked, packed and drenched

Wed 20 Jan
Report written by Anji Andrews

It's always a smash and grab effort on Foodbank Wednesdays as the time flies over, packed with good things!

Max braved the horrific Tyneside storms today to cycle to the task showing how hard core GoodGymers are. He was first to arrive and happily already packing food parcels when I arrived.

Very shortly afterwards, Kate and Charlotte arrived and we spilt the jobs with the other foodbank volunteers. I was on my favourite task of loading the delivery cars with help from Max (I expertly allocated him the heavy bags) while Fiona a regular foodbank helper organised the drivers. We worked as fast as we could to avoid the heavy rain but I still ended up with very wet feet!

Kate and Charlotte took charge of replenishing the shelves ahead of a big tidy and pack day tomorrow. The foodbank has received a massive influx of donations and today every family received an extra bag of food which was a really heart warming feeling.

If you can donate, they are looking for toiletries, sanitary products and baby goods. Let me know if you'd like me to arrange a collection or pop along any time to drop items off.

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!

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.

Easy peas-y lemon* squeezy

Thu 19 Nov
Report written by Louise Laws

*Actually they were limes! With East End Women’s super woman Nancy, first timer at the food bank Charlotte, returning for a second time Florence, and I all sharing out the jobs today, the task today was easy peas-y lemon squeezy! Charlotte and Florence stacked the fab new shelves, I packed some more bags ready for delivery and we all helped load the bags into the volunteer delivery drivers’ cars. We built a huge Fruit Shoot mountain and a fluorescent pink Lucozade display! We were short of fresh veg this week but someone had kindly cooked curry and rice for the food bank’s freezer so hopefully, together with a naan bread this was a good substitute. Same time next week?

So much rubbish. Unbe(leaf)able!

Sun 1 Nov
Report written by Charlotte Proud

We had a lovely morning litter picking in Exhibition Park. Thankfully the rain actually stayed away! I was joined by Carol Anne, Liz, Louise, Kate and Charlotte.

The bin bags that I had picked up turned out to be absolutely huge (as seen in the photo with Carol Anne!) There was so much rubbish about, that we could have carried on for hours. So many bottles and cans.

It was lovely to be thanked by a member of the public in the park for our efforts.

It was absolutely lovely to welcome Charlotte and Kate for their first ever GoodGym good deed! Please go and give them a cheer, they were so enthusiastic and got stuck in straight away.

(The award for the best find of the day actually goes to Charlotte and Kate who found a Halloween wig)
