Organisations Dee Ower has pledged to support
Great to be able to help Miss S get some shopping in today in my lunch hour. I rang her in the morning to check if the list had changed and she asked for me to go and get a new list. I walked there and collected the list and cash and off I went to Sainsbury’s. I had to get some substitutes but she was happy. We had a little chat and she said thanks for helping out as she could not get out the house due to health problems. She had a smile on her face when I left and told her to contact good gym again if she needed anything. These small missions surely make a difference.
Dee is part of a crowd that's making a huge noise. Dee has been cheered by 25 people - that's a round of applause just on their own. We hope they keep it up.
I walked to collect a sample for Mr D, I arrived at his flat and the package was outside. He was behind his door and we had a quick chat. He said he was grateful I was able to turn up to help him. I told him to have a nice day and off I walked to the GP surgery to hand it over to them. I left feeling good I could do another mission in the middle of my busy week to help someone in need. Dx
Dee is a now a pretty committed GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the fifth time
So after the news we are now in another lockdown I decided it is now time to do as many missions as I can in the next 6-8 weeks to help those who are vulnerable and isolated, whether this is walking, running or cycling to help with these missions. A great start to 2021 by being able to help out in the community. Now we are in another lockdown and Tier 5 there will be a lot more people who are vulnerable and isolated at this time. On the way to the task I called Mrs P to check the shopping list and off I went to find the local Co-Op where I got everything on the list. I walked with the shopping and when I got to the door I rang the bell and said it’s Dee from Good Gym. She sounded really happy. I wished her a happy new year and asked how Christmas was for her. We had a little chat and she said she had been in hospital and not well but was recovering. She was really grateful to me. I told her hopefully it will get better for her in 2021 and if she needs anything to contact Age UK who will contact Good Gym. She said thanks and god bless for taking time out of my day. I left and walked home thinking how lucky I am to be healthy at this time and to take one day at a time and to keep on signing up to missions in my area. Xx
Dee has helped keep other people motivated, Dee has noticed what others have done and cheered 10 people. We doff our caps to you Dee.
It was so lovely to be able to help Mrs P with her shopping, she was very grateful to see me and it bought a smile to her face. Small things make a difference in someone’s life at this time. I called her when I was on my way and she was waiting by the door when I arrived. We had a little chat and she had told me she had just got out of hospital so was very grateful. I ran to Sainsbury’s and got everything on the list. I returned and left it in her doorway. We wished each other happy new year and I said big hug to her. She was happy. Dee x
