Bedtime stories 2

Wed 27 Jan 23:45 pm
*, *, *
helping mums with some bedtime book reading

What feels like years ago now, but was actually June, we did round 1 of reading & recording bedtime stories for the mums looked after by the Magpie Project - time for a fresh batch!

Their simple explanation / guidance:

Find a bedtime story you love.

Film yourself reading it, dress up, do voices, or not, up to you.

Email to themagpieprojectE7@gmail.com

We put it on mums' and minis Whatsapp.

Will NOT be shared wider.

Simple act of love.

The kids will be varying ages, so feel free to pick anything you like, everything is appreciated. I've picked the 27th as 'deadline' but feel free to send it anytime before or after, just drop me a screen shot to add to the little report i'll write!

Transport Pret leftovers to a homeless charity

Sat 23 Jan 16:25 pm
Pret A Manger, 80-82 St John's Road, London, SW11 1PX
Help put otherwise wasted food to good use 🥪

Bright Morning Star Prisons and Homeless Outreach help to rebuild, support and elevate the lives of the most vulnerable people on the street and at their Walk-In Centres. They provide basic and immediate physical and emotional help to the public, and provide a free counselling service.

We've been asked to help with transporting leftovers from Pret A Manger, St John’s Road, Clapham, SW11 1PX to Lola who distributes the food at 3 Hermes Court, Southey Road, SW9 0PF. Here's a map - it's a 5km run/ride.

If you go in and say you're collecting food for Bright Morning Star Prison and Homeless Outreach, they should give you the leftovers! There may be quite a lot so just take what you can :)


🎒Please bring a backpack/panniers to transport the food (plastic bags might be useful too as the bags the pastries etc are in can be greasy!).

🤿Please bring a mask to wear in the shop

We need 3 people to sign up to transport the food - you can either run or ride, together or separately. If there are any problems, please call Lola on 07492079197 or 07946288144.

Any questions? Email me 👉 markgilyead@goodgym.org

Thank you 🙏 and hope it goes well!

Broc & Roll

Fri 15 Jan
Report written by Lucy Hill

I had offered to help out with the food parcel packing for the Smile Brigade on Friday morning, and was delighted to turn up and be greeted by my fellow GoodGymmer Áine, who was also putting a shift in.

The Smile Brigade deliver food packages with groceries, basic essentials and hot meals to vulnerable residents up and down the Hammersmith & Fulham borough, and our first task of the day was to bag up the groceries for the deliveries that afternoon.

Along with a team of other lovely volunteers, we made up over a hundred blue bags of produce, filled with biscuits, milk, fresh bread and rolls, yoghurts, and interestingly enough, sauerkraut. There was a lot of sauerkraut! Then Áine and her fruit and veg team put together pears of potatoes, bananas, carrots, onions, apples... And some of the lucky bags even got the biggest bits of broccoli seen!

After making up all the bags, we helped unload a few more donations (more sauerkraut), emptied onions and tidied up the recycling, before the last challenge of filling up cups with porridge oats, and finding lids to fit!

Oat last, we finished, time flew by, and the morning shift was done, and the volunteers for the afternoon deliveries had arrived to take our bags away. Hopefully putting a smile on their faces.

Tanks, but no tanks

Thu 14 Jan
Report written by Lucy Hill

Frances & I had been asked to help Mr V move some furniture in his flat to make space for a new armchair that would be arriving soon. Poor old Mr V had only just been discharged from hospital having had a fall, and was feeling quite tired following all this.

We arrived, and Mr V let us in. He thought we were here to measure up and bring his new chair. We explained that we weren’t, and that we had been asked to help with moving his table and old chair to make space for the new one. Mr V, we had been told before the mission, was very particular about how things were done, and he did not want our help to make some space today.

Not quite plane sailing!

Frances tried her best, offering to help move some of the piles of his music manuscripts, or to rearrange the position of the table in the middle of the room. Mr V was quite adamant that if we were to move anything it would cause great confusion, and tanks, but no tanks to our help.

We did have a little chat, and admired Mr V’s war memorabilia - he had quite a collection of model tanks and planes! So we headed off, and hoped that when his friend visits tomorrow she has more success than us at getting his furniture moved safely.
