Cooking @ Mercato Metropolitano's festive holiday programme for kids

Mon 27 Dec 10:30 am
42 Newington Causeway, London, SE1 6DR
Helping out "MM in the Community" facilitate this festive programme for the local kids

Mercato Metropolitano near Elephant & Castle is probably best known as a great date venue or hang out spot with friends with its diverse food court, however, they have a "giving back to the community" angle to their business. "MM in the Community" are organizing a programme of activities for the local children during the Christmas break. This includes cooking classes, arts and crafts and theatre workshops.

The classes will be attended by 20 kids (over a two day cycle - new set of 20 kids every two days). The sessions will be run by professionals. However, they would love our support to oversee the activities, look after the children, serve lunch and other small tasks. They would need 2-3 volunteers for this. Please sign-up, if you can commit.

The two day programme is as following:

Day 1 (10:30-13:00): Cooking class and lunch - This listing

Day 2 (10:30-15:00): Arts & Crafts, Lunch and Theatre workshop.

TRAIDing old clothes for new

Mon 15 Nov
Report written by Jenny

Jen, Diane and Stuart met at TRAID in Brixton to help the team on the last day of their sale. We helped clear away all the old stock into big cages, clear up the shop floor and brought out the new winter stock. This was quite an active task so great for shaking the Monday blues!

TRAID, 2 Acre Lane, London, SW2 5SG
Help the store get ready for their new stock

🛍Our friends at the fantastic Brixton TRAID charity shop need US!

🎄 👗 With Xmas and new winter stock coming in, the Brixton TRAID store need our help to pack away the Autumn stock in large boxes and the clothes hangers sorted and packed away too. They will then have space to bring out all their new stock.

🧹 🧼 Come along on a wintery November night to see how a little teamwork can go a long way to transform the shop and help them towards a fantastic end of the year in the store!

📍 🗺 The store is at 2, Acre Lane, Brixton, next to the iconic Brixton McDonalds and just a step from the Brixton tube and the Lambeth Town Hall bus stop - so super easy to reach.

⏰ We’ll be done in the hour, and you’ll be able to finish your week with that feel good feeling!

Sorting harvest Festival food donations - Friday lunchtime mission!

Fri 29 Oct 12:00 pm
Ace of Clubs, St Alphonsus Road, London , SW4 7AS
at a local homeless support centre

Ace of Clubs is a local support centre for people living on the streets in the area. They offer hot meals, showers, vet and medical advice and job support to people who need it most.

They receive lots of donations from schools at this time of year to help with the meals, but they are struggling to sort it all and have asked for our help. This is a great hands-on lunchtime mission where you'll be making a big difference for an amazing organisation.

When you get there ignore the queue of people waiting to be given their lunch, and go into the main centre. Ask for Martin or Willem, or look for any GoodGymer in a red tshirt!

Orange you glad it didn’t rain? 🍊

Wed 20 Oct
Report written by Diane

Thankfully the forecast rain clouds stayed away as I popped down to Tesco this morning. I picked up few bits that were too heavy for Ms G to manage on her own - oat milk, apple juice, water, a couple of tins and some oranges…🍊

Bean and done

Thu 7 Oct
Report written by Diane

Ms A needed a few things from Iceland. All went to plan apart from being out of stock of their five bean salad. The worst part of the whole mission was that I then spent 6.2k running home trying and failing to come up with a bean pun. I know there must be lots out there 🤨🙂
