Probing the streets!

Thu 29 Jul
Report written by Beth Nelson

With over 500 SATs probes packed up by the GoodGym team it was time to start delivering them to the patients who most needed them for Central Camden PCN.

Address labels were stuck onto the packages and a delivery route was mapped out for the evening. The 4 GoodGym'ers: Eddie, Katrin and 'Big little' and 'Little' Beth loaded up their backpacks and split into two groups.

Beth² set off in one direction and began working their way down the mapped out list of stops. It was a tricky start with one flat block seemingly a maze! Eventually the final flat was located and they could continue on their way to the next delivery stops.

Katrin and Eddie meanwhile were making quick work of their deliveries. They had set off in the opposite direction and were making their way up the mapped out list of stops - the grand plan was that both groups would eventually meet in the middle! However, they too got stopped in their tracks by a similarly tricky maze-like block of flats.

After 90 minutes and 72 deliveries (plus the bonus of lots of flights of stairs!) we all called it a night. Great work teams!

Islington Garden Renovation Day with The People's Army! (NOW SUNDAY!)

Sun 9 May 10:30 am
Forest Court, Ellington Street, Islington, London, N7 8PQ
The People's Army are dedicating another day towards a residential council garden project, and we have been invited to help!

Gardening for Good!

Goodgym Islington have been invited to help The People's Army team with renovating a residential gardening space and accessible entrance point for elderly and disabled households.

Hazel, the task owner for our Monday food bank missions at the Angel Church, will be on hand on the day (contact details will be sent to all sign-ups).

What to expect:

  • Soil removal and fresh compost spreading for new plants and veg
  • Moving bricks and paving slabs to create a pathway for disabled residents

The task will occur from 10am - 5pm, and sign-ups are welcome to come and go throughout the day.

However, I recommend messaging Hazel to let her know approximately when you would be arriving and leaving.

*NEW TASK!* Supermarket Sweep around Marylebone Road

Sun 17 Jan 11:00 am
Life After Hummus, Old Diarama Arts Centre, 201 Drummond Street, London, NW1 3FE
The local residents in need will be so grateful for your help

Life After Hummus, a local food-waste-fighting charity based in Camden needs our help this Sunday between 11am-3pm, picking up time-sensitive food from two shops and bringing it back to their warehouse on Drummond Street.

They've been going for a while now and are a well-oiled organising machine.

The plan: Two teams of two runners have a shift each. Maintain social distancing and remember your masks (and gloves if you want to use them) when you're going into the supermarkets.

11am-1pm: First pair of runners to arrive at the Old Diarama Arts Centre, 201 Drummond Street, NW1 3FE Here you'll meet Becky, one of the main coordinators. She'll give you a quick rundown of what's what and then give you a little trolley to take down to the first shop: M&S on Edgware Road (Marks and Spencer, 258 Edgware Rd, W2 1DU - on the crossroads by the Tube station) Pick up what the shop is giving away to Life After Hummus and then trundle back to the warehouse.

1pm-3pm: Second pair of runners meet at the warehouse and take over. You'll be heading to the Aldi Local - Camden, 125-133 Camden High St, Camden Town, NW1 7JR to pick up their wares and return it back.

If you'd like to help out, please sign up by Thursday at 12pm, as I'll need to let Becky know if we haven't been able to make up the numbers, so she has time to find others to help.

Job done and one that could definitely become more regular over the rest of the year!
