Wow, Jacqui has completed a 12 month mission streak. That means they've cleared gardens, moved furniture and changed light bulbs in spring, summer, autumn and even winter. Show your support and give them a massive cheer!
And Greggs have certainly not given up generously donating their doughnuts, pastries, sandwiches and other sweet treats. We packed them into bags, a wheelie case and backpacks and headed up the road to give them to Bright Morning Star Prison and Homeless Outreach.
So we can still be active, social and community spirited by doing a little plogging over the next couple of weeks of lockdown. Ideally with another member or friend. Maybe you have spotted some rubbish locally. If you need a picker let me know and I will try to drop one off to you. Send us a picture of your exploits. This a a rolling event to do before the end of the month.
Bright Morning Star Prisons and Homeless Outreach help to rebuild, support and elevate the lives of the most vulnerable people on the street and at their Walk-In Centres. They provide basic and immediate physical and emotional help to the public, and provide a free counselling service.
We've been asked to help with transporting leftovers from Greggs, 4 Electric Avenue, Brixton to Lola who distributes the food at 3 Hermes Court, Southey Road, SW9 0PF. Here's a map - it's a 2km run/ride.
Please arrive by 6pm. If you go in and say you're collecting food for Bright Morning Star Prison and Homeless Outreach, they should give you the leftovers! There may be quite a lot so just take what you can :)
🎒Please bring a backpack/panniers to transport the food (plastic bags might be useful too as the bags the pastries etc are in can be greasy!).
🤿Please bring a mask to wear in the shop
We need 3 people to sign up to transport the food - you can either run or ride, together or separately. If there are any problems, please call Lola from Bright Morning Star on 07492 079197

Thank you 🙏 and hope it goes well!
....the veg being Greggs Vegetable Bakes this evening😋. These, plus a selection of other yummy treats kindly donated by Greggs were carried along to the BMS Prison and Homeless Outreach charity, where they were gratefully received.
Lots of us had a good start to our saturdays doing some plogging in the spring sunshine.
There was plenty rubbish to be found, including ice cream wrappers and vodka on Bournemouth beach (people obviously living life more fully down south) and lots of bottle caps in Charlton...but no bottles?!
Clear up at River Gardens, riverside, & Thames beach...got carried away & did about 4 hours and met interested passerbys asking about Goodgym/volunteering. Found a cone!
Jacqui and Sally litter picked in Brixton, where there was sadly lots of rubbish - cans, bottles, food packaging and face masks.
Thank you everyone for making your places that much nicer!
On with your gloves and break out those bin bags!
Let's spread the love and get to some litter picking on your own or with someone you close by.
Photo challenge Take a selfie with your most interesting find!

Happy de-littering, gang!
