We return to the warehouse for one final push helping the team empty the premises for as they prepare to leave the building...
Tasks may include:
- Helping with redistribution.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:
On arrival, you need to complete the sign-in book to your right as you arrive in the loading bay.
...Then grab a hi-vis vest.
...And sanitise your hands.
Wait for Richard, our project coordinator, to come and collect you (Richard will be doing regular 'sweeps' of this area to come and collect GoodGymers, so sit tight and chat to fellow runners - keeping your distance from one another!).
Health and Safety
You need to bring your own gloves to wear.
You need to bring a face covering and when you're working in an indoor area, you will need to wear your face covering.
The warehouse gets chilly. Please wear plenty of layers.
We've partnered up with Get Out, a charity that focuses on youngsters developing a relationship with nature. Plastic free campaigning, surfing experiences and permaculture education. This is a brilliant, worthy cause.
They manage a garden at Malmesbury Primary School in Tower Hamlets. Harvesting, planting, growing, building, weeding...there'll be a range of jobs on offer and perhaps some tips to develop your own cultivation skills.
"The founding goal of GET OUT is to use environmental education to strengthen the connection between Tower Hamlets' young people and the natural world. "
The knowledgeable Kieran will be there to offer instructions and permaculture/gardening tips.
This will be a GG only event, we'll keep a safe covid secure distance outdoors. The task is three hours, as there's a bit to do!
So due to unforseen circumstances today became our last visit to the Crisis warehouse.
A very warm welcome from Richard to greet us on this chilly day,after a quick catch up we headed to Bay 3 for our final packing assignment.
Helen and I had the task of repacking and listing the craft items....it seems crafting and paper was not enough information for the spreadsheet bosses.....Richard had helped by part unpacking the cages for us.
A great morning of work and we headed of for lunch.
Some additional personnel arrived for the final push
The office team and the PPE teams had great fun shrink wrapping the filled pallets ready for them to be collected to go into storage ready for Christmas 2021
