Jenny, Ruth, Dottie and Lucy met on a warm October night for bag packing at St Faith’s, to continue our help with Andrea’s Get Rid and Donate charity drive.
Tonight, we packed up small toiletries bags from peoples donations of shampoos, shower gels, socks, hats, face masks and other small hygienic products, for Andrea to give out at the Strand tomorrow night to the rough sleepers. We bagged up about 30 little bags in total, all stuffed full!
We also met a very friend fluffy Ginger cat 🐱 🐈
Me and Lucy helped out with the weekly clothes donations drive at St Faiths - people in the local area sign up to bring along their old coats, duvets, clothes and household items for the Get Rid and Donate campaign. Andrea and her team distribute these essential items to people in need in the local area and more widely in London too.
Me and Lucy helped take in the donations, sort them into different piles and haul them out into the shed. GoodGym Lambeth will be back on Tuesday to help sort these donations, so they’re ready in packs to be given out to rough sleepers on the Strand. Make sure to sign up for that session! Or if you have any warm clothes, coats, duvets or sleeping bags to donate please sign up for a slot - https://www.getridofit-donate.com/
It was great to welcome Lucy along to her first mission, hopefully we will see you back again soon 😁
Get Rid Of And Donate (GROAD) do amazing work making use of unused STUFF donated to them by the public. We've previously helped them pack Christmas presents and toys for local kids and packed and distributed bags of essentials for rough sleepers.
This week they've got a stall at Herne Hill Market and would love a hand in taking these donations and categorising them into different gender clothes, toys and household goods.
The task is at Herne Hill Market, right outside the station. There may not be a member of taskforce there, but the GROAD team are all very friendly 😊
