We were back at Tescos for our weekly food drops with The Little Edi Foundation courtesy of Tescos and Fareshare. Firstly a big warm welcome to Rachel on her first task with GoodGym Chelmsford having recently moved to the area. I hope you enjoyed it and will be back for more!! And secondly a welcome return to Isabelle for her first task since the pandemic began. David and Laurie also enjoyed their first task of 2021!
This week there was a lot of food, and a large variety of different things as well, even cat food. We all grabbed our plastic bags and got packing before making our drop offs to various families around Chelmsford that the charity supports.
The Little Edi Foundation is a small local charity that enables disadvantaged children to fulfil their potential, giving them equal access to food, education and learning development.
They receive food donations from Fareshare at Tescos which needs to be distributed on Sundays and Wednesdays.
For this task we will be helping The Little Edi Foundation sort and deliver their food parcels on Sunday evening directly from Tescos on Springfield Road. Meeting at around the back where the lorry's go! (just opposite The Two Brewers Pub).
Most of the deliveries will be in the Melboure area, if you are running/walking bring a backpack and if you are cycling a basket or panniers would help. Or there is the very un-GoodGym way of driving.
Anyone who does sign up for this task will need to have a very brief personal reference written for them before taking part in the task. I will email you the details when you sign up.
Due to the current pandemic, face masks must be worn and you are not allowed to car-share unless you are in the same household/support bubble.
