Packing bags of essentials

Mon 10 May

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 helped sort and relocate their stock.

Now Andrea has asked if we can give them a hand packing bags of essentials (blankets, clothes and toiletries etc.) for rough sleepers. These will then be distributed on Tuesday at a separate task.

The task is at St Faith's Church Hall, near North Dulwich station and we need 8 people.

Please bring a mask as the task will be inside 🤿

Report written by Sam Lefevre

GROAD (Get Rid Of And Donate) asked for GoodGym to come to help with their Sunday session between 13:00-14:30, where they receive donations from the public, but they also use this time to sort out clothing and pack a suitcase or bag's worth of essential items for the homeless.

These bags comprise of a couple of shirts, t-shirts, sweaters/fleeces, pair of shoes, towels and a blanket. An emergency "starter" kit as we are only a step or two away from that reality.. people would appreciate a little help in hand.

Jessica, Matt (first timer 🙌🎉) and I showed up to help Susan who showed us the ropes for the first 45 minutes before we were left to it ourselves. We started a system of putting items on tables and then the last half hour we started to pack the suitcases and bags. Unfortunately, we did not complete the task, but then again there are two more sessions. More to come!

Jessica completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Jessica was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.

Report written by Lewisham runner

We did a paint job, a few paint jobs, for Lavender Hope. And we’re nearing the final paint job as they have their grand opening planned for 21st and 22nd May!

Following on from our paint job, we had a bit of a job to scrape off any paint that had gone awry. Just a little, here, there, everywhere, every sink, every light switch. We spruced it up really nicely though with our scrapers, white spirit and general elbow grease. Ready for nice new bathroom floors to match the great new floors in the common room.

A quick tea break, and we settled to come back next week. Final push to get the garden and the communal spaces ready for the opening. To which we are all invited! Details to follow in our WhatsApp group!

and maybe a bit of packing!

They understandably have a lot of stock, covering projects for vulnerable families and refugees, so have asked for our help to sort their weekly stock intake.

The task is at St Faith's Church Hall, near North Dulwich station and we need 3 people. Andrea will be there to meet you and show you what needs doing.

Painting and Weeding at Lavender Hope Community Centre

Sat 8 May 11:00 am
Deronda Community Hall, Jarrett Close, Tulse Hill, SW2 3DG
Preparing for their reopening

Lavender Hope is a charity based in Deronda Community Hall who do amazing work supporting young people and adults, providing a homework club and help getting jobs. They've been closed since the start of the pandemic, so have taken the opportunity to refurbish the buiding.

That's where we come in.

They've asked for a hand finishing some painting in the kitchen and office and pulling up some weeds in the garden - We need 6 people split across the inside and outside.

Please bring a mask 🤿 and I'd advise not wearing your best running gear (but from memory the paint is water soluble 🧐).

Deronda Community Hall is on Jarrett Close, here.
