Jar War

Mon 17 May
Report written by Tower Hamlets runner

Team of 4 devoted goodgym runners and cyclists came to help at Borough food cooperative.

Apart from our usual tasks, shelf restocking and vegetables sorting (cheer those upsetting up), this time we were given a new challenge - empty dozens of Nacho cheese dip, that had already passed their best. The jars and lids will be washed and recycled, whilst the dip will go to food waste.

Gemma has shown her wrist power. Opening jar after jar effortlessly. Fleur and Ceiling scooped out the content. Mayuko joined the team scooping so Ceiling switched to jar opening later.

None of us has ever opened so many jars in one! Therefore that would our personal best and remain world (our own world) record until then!

Well done team! May the force and the cheesy messy odor be with you!

Food2You Tesco shop, Thursday edition

Thu 13 May 09:00 am
Tesco Extra, Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, London, SE16 7LL
Help this fantastic organisation

Are you available to help our friends at Food2You on a Thursday morning in Surrey Quays? This is a fun task that will make a big difference!

What's involved?

  • Meet Food2You team at Tesco in Surrey Quays between 9-11am
  • Pick up a shopping list and head into the store to find the items
  • Bring these back to the team, where together, you will double check the items before they are boxed to go through the till

ON ARRIVAL

  • If you arrive and there is a queue, go to the front and tell them you are volunteering with Food2You/Age UK and they will let you in
  • Walk through the store to the far end. In between the alcohol and the bakery section there is a big double white door. Go through the door, turn left, and Terry and the team should all be in there
  • If you can't find the way, look out for shoppers in Tesco with red clipboards, that say 'I'm shopping for local older people' on the back, and they will be able to point you in the right direction!

Food2You is a shopping delivery service provided for older people through Age UK. We are excited to be able to get involved, with this task now a weekly activity on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

You will, of course, need to adhere to social distancing rules, wear a mask and gloves and take direction from the Food2You team.

Help at a charity dawn swim event

Sun 30 May 04:00 am
Beckenham Place Park, Beckenham, London, BR3 5HG
Contribute to a fundraising activity

This is a very unusual opportunity! On Sunday May 30th there will be a unique water-based fundraiser and we have been asked to help.

The event is to raise funds for Brent Knoll & Watergate Co-operative Trust, two SEND schools in our area. People will be invited to swim various distances in the lake at Beckenham Place Park, raising sponsorship money for the schools. The event is taking place at day-break, so volunteers will be required to arrive at the park very early!

There are a number of roles, including:

  • stewarding swimmers (lifeguards will be in place, so this is just an ushering role)
  • helping caterers to bring breakfast to the swimmers
  • making up goody bags (and handing these, and certificates, to swimmers)
  • directing people from the car park to the lake
  • litter-picking/tidying up after the event

Things to consider: this is a very early start, so you need to be able to make your own way to the lake in Beckenham in the early hours of the morning (maybe we could buddy people up to cycle/walk/run together from different directions). It's likely to be cold at that time, so you will need to dress accordingly, as you will be standing around. The event will be COVID-safe, so you will need to bring a mask, hand gel and to adhere to the rules in place at this time.

If you want to take part, please sign up, then we can assign specific roles nearer the time, depending on what you prefer to do.

"Scrambling" to the challenge....

Fri 7 May
Report written by Allison Randell

2 Goodgym runners 'egg-citingly' arrived at Borough Food Cooperative HQ for various tasks helping them get ready for the following days opening. We completed a couple of shopping lists for shielding customers, then with food hub coordinator Adam, we took a trolley over to Borough Market to collect some more donated veg from one of the stall holders - Teds Veg. After loading up our trolley full we 'egg-pertly' wheeled it back and sorted it all out. GoodGym member Fleur spent a while making yoghurt pots, whilst I sorted through the wild garlic - then we spent a fun time egg bobbing - testing over. a hundred eggs in pots of water to see if they were still fresh... "If you're not sure you ought-ter, then place it in water. If it lies on its side, then it’s fresh; eat with pride!"
